Newspaperman reflects back on murder trial
Murder cases are not uncommon in the Florida’s Gulf Coast area of Sarasota. But it’s rare for the defense to argue temporary insanity for its client. This is the day after a jury there found Oconee County resident Michael Rice guilty on all counts in the shooting death of Philippe Nahon in 2012 at an Osprey, Florida hotel. And a newspaper reporter who covered the trial spoke to 96.3/WGOG NEWS about the piece of evidence that may have been the most telling as the jurors reached their verdicts. Drew Winchester of the North Port, Florida Sun says he believes the jury spent the most time on was the vide-recorded interview detectives conducted with Rice, several hours after Nahon was murdered. And, on 96.3/WGOG NEWS, Winchester talks about that video-recorded interview and how the jury might have reacted to it.
