flyingtiger1013 Posted May 10, 2005 Share Posted May 10, 2005 Man Accused Of Putting Boy In Oven To Plead Insanity Man Already Pleaded Insanity In Sister's Death POSTED: 7:52 am EDT May 10, 2005 SAN ANTONIO -- Lawyers plan an insanity defense Tuesday as they open the trial of a Texas man who allegedly smothered his girlfriend's son in an oven. Kenneth Pierott is charged with murdering the 6-year-old a little over a year ago. The oven pilot light wasn't lit, but an autopsy found Tre-Devin Odoms died from asphyxia due to smothering. Prosecutors said Pierott knew right from wrong when he tried to cremate the boy in the oven. Defense lawyers said he was insane, and will use testimony from two court-appointed psychiatrists. In 1998, Pierott was found not guilty by reason of insanity in the fatal beating of his sister. He was held at a mental hospital for four months and released. That case won't be discussed in front of the jury. :mad: http://www.nbc4.com/news/4470137/detail.html Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
