Jeremiah Wright indicted on murder of his 7 year old son Jori Lirette
It is a very gruesome case. Wright bludgeoned, decapitated Jori and dismembered him. He put the head of Jori on the street for his mother to see after she returned from getting her truck fixed, but a passer by saw it and called authorities. The dismembered body was found nearby in trash bags.
Wright who stated that he killed Jori because he was a dummy, and not his son. He also did it out of anger towards his girlfriend and Jori’s mother.
Wright has been arrested four times. In 2007 for misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Twice charged with contempt of court. He was also arrested on a simple burglary charge in 2004 and later pleaded guilty to a downgraded charge of theft. He was placed on unsupervised probation and was later ordered to serve 10 days in jail after he failed to meet a 96-hour community service stipulation.
Wright had waived his right to an attorney and confessed to killing Jori. He has been indicted on murder and is being held in lieu of $5 million bond and charged on first degree murder. Wright’s attorney on Friday filed paperwork stating that Wright does NOT comprehend the charges against him and cannot properly assist his appointed attorney. In the paperwork it states that he lacks mental capacity required by law to proceed. [thanks s_c]
