Deliberations Begin In Kevorkian Trial

Jurors began deliberations Friday in Dr. Jack Kevorkian’s third assisted-suicide trial after his lawyer told them the doctor was the target of vindictive Michigan judges and prosecutors.

The common-law crime under which Kevorkian is charged was unconstitutionally fabricated by a tyrannical Michigan Supreme Court and state Court of Appeals, attorney Geoffrey Fieger said.

Assistant Prosecutor Lawrence Bunting said Kevorkian’s conspiracy theory “sounds like paranoia run rampant.”
