Was Killer Seen Shaking Uncontrollably in Court Faking It?
A convicted killer in Virginia was trembling and twitching as he was wheeled into court to be sentenced for murdering his ex. A few days earlier, he looked healthy during a jailhouse interview with TV reporter Allison Mechanic. Deputies say 31-year-old Joseph Merlino showed no sign of being unwell until 90 minutes before his sentence was due to be handed down on Monday. Merlino was found guilty of killing his ex-girlfriend by injecting her with cyanide on Valentine’s Day 2017.
