|Barkley Mug Shot (Ithaca Journal)|
The killing was a mystery, because the men appeared to have no connection. They had not known each other prior to December 8, nor had they battled at Walmart. It looked like a random act.
Then this: During his arraignment, Barkley pled guilty, saying, "I shot and killed Donald Trump purposely, intentionally and very proudly."
After trying unsuccessfully to get Barkley to agree that he might have mistaken Schumacher for Trump, Judge Rowley declined to accept the guilty plea.
Stay tuned on this one, as the Trump Defense becomes a thing.
