Strange behavior has been common during the trial of Jerome Power. On Monday, Power poured water on the head of his attorney, Steve Addington, as jurors left to deliberate the verdict of his murder trial. He felt that there should have been a mistrial, and reportedly exclaimed "You sold me out!"
Power was charged with first degree murder in Iowa for allegedly strangling his neighbor, 68-year-old Doris Bevins, to death in September 2010. Police say they found Power hiding behind the front door after they responded to a 911 call from Bevins's friend who was on the phone with her during the attack.
Addington argued that it would make no sense for Power to attack a woman when everyone in the neighborhood knew she had no money. Last week, Power held up a hand-written sign in court that said someone else killed Bevins.
Some advice to Power: Don't let your emotions come pouring out in court.
