(Connecticutt Post) Frustrated because he thought there were no job openings at a construction site, Gregory Weathers pulled out a handgun and fatally shot one of the workers, according testimony Tuesday.
“He said he was looking for a job and he felt they weren’t helping him out to get a job,” Retired Police Detective Paul Ortiz testified as Weathers’ trial opened before a three-judge panel. “He was apologetic, sorry for what he had done.”
The 34-year-old Weathers is not denying he killed 31-year-old Jose Araujo, of Milford, on March 26, 2015. But Weathers maintains he is suffering from a mental disease or defect — the insanity defense.
