What a stand up guy......
Read all of this sillyness here.
Did Brad Reay brutally and premeditatedly stab his 41-year-old wife Tamera five times in the back of her shoulder, 19 times across her chest and then slit her throat?
Or is it possible that the Reay's 12-year-old daughter committed the violent act while apparently sleepwalking, as defense attorney Timothy Rensch said during opening statements Wednesday morning?
"Something very bad happened," Rensch said, "something that no family should ever have happen. It was horrific and terrible.
"Keep and open mind - (the girl) killed her mother. It may seem unbelievable, but truth is stranger than fiction."
According to Rensch's opening statement, Brad Reay will testify that he was awakened in the middle of the night by a noise. He thought it was the cat and went to see what had happened. Reay couldn't find anything, including his daughter, who was not in her room, the bathroom, or the kitchen. Then he thought maybe she went downstairs to sleep with her mother, so he went to see.
Reay's testimony will be that when he entered the room where Tami Reay slept regularly, their daughter was standing beside his wife's bed. He asked what she was doing and got no response.
He entered and then saw the blood, all over Tami Reay, all over the bed and all over his daughter.
"What have you done?" Reay will say he asked frantically several times, each time getting no response. "She seemed catatonic," Reay apparently told Rensch.
Yes, it looks like we're going to be asked to believe the father's story that the 12 year old Daughter brutally sleep-murdered her mother, and Dad was only protecting his daughter by covering up the crime.
What a stand up guy.
