Man responsible for Spring shooting will likely plead insanity
The man who was arrested in Harris County for shooting and killing six family members will likely plead insanity, KHOU reported on July 11.
Ron Lee Haskell, 33, collapsed at a hearing that recounted his alleged shooting of seven family members, six of whom were killed. After his second time falling to his knees, he was wheel-chaired out of the courtroom. The defense attorney assigned to his case, Doug Durham, has reported that his client was going through a traumatic divorce and had stopped taking his medication at the time of the shooting. Additionally, Haskell had a history of mental illness.
Prosecutors, however, believe that Haskell planned and executed these murders with the full capacity of his mind, and the reason he collapsed in the courtroom was because the reality of the consequences was finally beginning to sink in.
