Thibodaux Man Accused Of Decapitating His Disabled Son Gets Lawyer
The Thibodaux man accused of decapitating his disabled 7-year old son has been assigned a lawyer experienced in death-penalty cases. The AP reports this doesn't necessarily mean prosecutors will seek the death penalty. Police say Jeremiah Lee Wright cofessed to killing Jori Lirette, who had many medical problems and very limited speech. Thibodaux Police Chief Scott Silvestrii says the motive is still unclear.
