Murder Suspect Pours Water On His Lawyer’s Head In Court


least his lawyer kept a cool head.
On Monday, as members of the Cedar Rapids, Iowa jury filed out
to deliberate over the murder case against Jerome Power, the 50-year-old
suspect dumped a glass of water on his lawyer’s head, according to the Gazette.
“It should have been a mistrial,” Power said after dumping the
water on attorney Steve Addington. “You sold me out!”

Power is charged with first-degree murder for allegedly
strangling to death his neighbor, Doris Bevins, 68, in her home on Sept. 19,
2010. Police said they found Power hiding behind the front door when they
responded to the 911 call from Bevin’s friend who was on the phone with her
when she was attacked.

The ABA Journal reports that Power’s lawyer argued there was no
DNA linking the defendant to the crime and questioned why Power would try to
rob and attack a woman that, everyone in the neighborhood knew had no money.
This isn’t the only strange behavior exhibited by Power during
the trial, according to KWWL.
Last week, Power held up a hand-written sign, claiming someone
else killed his neighbor.
