Video Shows Murderer Laughing In Court As Statement From Victim’s Crying Mother Is Read

It was an emotional and shocking scene in a Michigan courtroom. A teenager who admitted to killing 18-year-old Jordan Klee, grinned and laughed as a statement written by the victim’s mom was read.

“I’ve lost my only child, my son, my baby, my friend. More than that, I lost laughter and love. I no longer have the hope of having grandchildren,” a family member read on behalf of Klee’s mother as the mom weeped and wiped tears from her eyes.

Seventeen-year-old Danta Wright smiled and shook his head as the statement was read. After the statement, he made a statement of his own, saying, “I just want to tell y’all I’ll be home soon…I love my family.”

The judge was less than impressed.

The plaintiff, Andrea Constand, testified that Cosby drugged and assaulted her in 2004. “In my head I was trying to get my hands to move or my legs to move, but I was frozen and those [mental] messages didn’t get there and I was very limp, so I wasn’t able to fight him,” she said. “I wanted it to stop.”

Cosby has been accused by over 50 women of drugging or sexual misconduct. He has denied the allegations.

Court rejects appeal of Connecticut woman in murder-for-hire – New …

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) A court on Monday rejected the appeal of a Connecticut woman convicted in a 1994 murder-for-hire case that landed her in prison for life and was depicted in books and TV shows.

Three judges on the Connecticut Appellate Court disagreed with Beth Carpenter’s argument that her trial lawyer made mistakes, including not securing a plea deal and not having an expert witness examine her before the trial.

Carpenter intends to appeal the ruling to the Connecticut Supreme Court, said her lawyer, Norman Pattis.

“The result is disappointing,” Pattis said. “We remain hopeful that justice will, in the end, be done. Beth Carpenter does not belong behind bars.”

Kevin Kane, the state’s top prosecutor, said the court ruling speaks for itself. He said his thoughts are with the victim’s family.

Carpenter, now 53, was convicted of murder and conspiracy in
