FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - Accused killer Jason Anderson didn’t take the witness stand, but the Fond du Lac County jury got to hear his voice Tuesday.
A tape of an interview the 36 year old Fond du Lac man did with police in Birmingham, Alabama, was played in court. It was conducted just days after 33 year old Nicole Anderson had died.
The defendant was emotional during the interview, saying he didn’t shoot his wife intentionally. He had driven to Birmingham to see his mother, but couldn’t work up the nerve to visit her.
In the interview, Anderson said the gun fired twice, he ran over to his wife and he knew she was dead. He admitted being drunk, saying they both had been drinking and he had smoked some marijuana and had done some cocaine.
Several times he said he had planned to take his own life, but just couldn’t go through with it. The trial is expected to wrap up this week.
