"Jett Smears Feces On Himself Before Trial"

Yesterday it was a marker pen. Now it's poop.

From KSAT-12:

SAN ANTONIO -- In a continuing effort to disrupt his murder trial, a man accused of stabbing another to death took a smelly route Thursday.

Richard Jett, accused of stabbing 80-year-old Homer Daniels to death in 2006, soiled himself and spread feces on his body just as his trial was scheduled to begin.

Jett was removed from the courtroom before proceedings began and the victim's son took the witness stand.


Testimony is expected to continue in the morning, but there is no word on Jett's possible presence. Previously, Jett has marked his body and face with a marker, removed and attempted to flush his clothing and lunged toward his attorney before being restrained.

A challenging trial, to say the least.
