Seacat Trial: Day 4

Kingman County, Kan., District Court Chief Judge Larry T. Solomon confers with defense attorney Roger Faulk and Amy Hanley Tuesday, May 28, 2013 Brett Seacat is charged with murder in the April 30, 2011, death of his wife, Vashti. He told Kansas Bureau of Investigation agents in his videotaped interview played before jurors Tuesday that he understood why they thought he was suspicious and agreed there were Òa lotÓ of red flags in the case. Prosecutors allege Seacat, angry over being served with divorce papers just days before his wifeÕs death, shot her in the head and tried to cover it up by setting their home on fire. The defense, meanwhile, counters she was depressed and set the fire herself before committing suicide. (May 28, 2013)
