Special Forces: Jordanian Soldier Who Shot and Killed US Troops Pleads Not Guilty, Says He Feared Attack

A Jordanian soldier charged with shooting dead three members of the U.S. Special Forces last year has pleaded not guilty to murder and intent to kill, claiming he believed he and his fellow troops were under attack.

The Jordanian Sergeant, Marik al-Tuwayha, entered the plea Tuesday, the first time he has taken the stand since the trial began, the Associated Press reported.

Tuwayha said he personally had no animosity towards Americans and spoke in a low voice from a cage in the Jordanian courtroom as he answered the charges. The presiding judge explained that an investigation had not revealed any ties between Tuwayha and terror groups.

Sunnyside homeowner killed fiancée for financial reasons, prosecutors say – KFSN

A Sunnyside homeowner is standing trial for murder right now in the death of his fiancée – a deadly shooting and a killer in a strange state of mind.

Stanley Pipes doesn’t deny he shot Kristie Claassen, but his attorney says he had a mental defect at the time. Prosecutors say what he really had was a recent discovery about his fiancée.

Sheriff’s deputies burst into the Sunnyside home after hearing the second set of gunshots in Dec. 2015. On the floor, they found Claassen.

“As she was rolled onto the side, we observed holes in the carpet below her head,” said Fresno County Sheriff’s Office crime scene investigator John Bawcom.

Those holes in the carpet lead investigators to believe she was shot at close range while lying on the ground. Not far away from the body, her killer lay motionless but alive on a couch, with a revolver right by his hand.
