Coleman defense begins

Kimethia Coleman's defense attorney Thomas Alonzo was scheduled to start his parade of witnesses in a Caddo District Court today.

The Caddo Parish District Attorney's office said their assistant DA, Dale Cox, wrapped up his case Friday in the second degree murder trial of the former Minden resident.

According to the District Attorney's office, Coleman began to "wail" aloud in Judge Mike Pitman's courtroom when the prosecution played a recording of her interview with detectives the night Brian Spinks was stabbed to death.

Coleman is charged in the death of Spinks in January 2010. He was reportedly stabbed 64 times.

She has entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity.

If found guilty, she faces life in prison at hard labor without benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence.
