Words Make Man Snap


Thomas Mitchell was found guilty for aggravated assault in the shooting of his girlfriend. He shot her because he thought she was going to say the word "New Jersey." His lawyer said certain words caused Mitchell to snap such as "Wisconsin," "New Jersey," "Snickers," and "Mars." Mitchell who is 54, covered his ears in court when these words were about to be said. The witnesses had to use flashcards instead. Mitchell was said to be troubled but not crazy. On March 19, 1999 Mitchell was convicted to shooting his girlfriend three times because he thought she was going to say "New Jersey." His girlfriend however survived the attack and died from other causes before the trial had begun.
