Trial begins for man charged with murder
The prosecution said Nov. 18 that Andrew Steplock, 28, broke into his parent’s home and killed his mother, then fled to Colorado. He was later arrested in Loveland.
They said he broke into the home to rob his parents. Steplock thought they were on vacation. They claim he did it so he could live a better life.
The defense says Steplock lived in a warehouse owned by his parents. They added that he killed his mother because he was told to by demons from a video game. They also added that he said these things because he is mentally ill.
Steplock’s trial will go until the end of the week.
