Opening statements set to begin in Capital Gazette shooting case; jurors to decide gunman’s sanity

June 29, 2021

Three years and one day after the Capital Gazette shooting, the sanity trial for the gunman is slated to begin. With a jury seated, defense attorneys and then prosecutors are expected to give opening statements Tuesday morning, previewing their respective positions on the case of the man who killed Gerald Fischman, Rob Hiaasen, John McNamara, Rebecca Smith and Wendi Winters. Jarrod Ramos, 41, already pleaded guilty to all his crimes. But his defense attorneys maintain he committed the murders because he was insane at the time.
