Lawyer: Newspaper gunman insane, not criminally responsible
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A defense attorney says the man who killed five people at a Maryland newspaper was delusional and believed the state’s judicial system was conspiring with the Capital Gazette to ruin his life. Hours later in court Tuesday, jurors saw photographs of the dead in the newsroom. Attorney Katy O’Donnell said Jarrod Ramos believed he was being intentionally persecuted after the newspaper wrote about his case of harassing a former high school classmate. Ramos has pleaded not criminally responsible due to insanity. O’Donnell says doctors will testify that Ramos is autistic. She says he also has obsessive compulsive disorder, delusional disorder and narcissistic personality disorder.
