$60 in makeup hiding defendant's devil's horn forehead tattoos from jury in Michigan murder case
Joseph Reiner charged with murder after Joanne Eisenhardt dies after break-in at her Macomb Township home
Makeup costing sixty dollars is being used to hide a Michigan defendant's forehead tattoos from a jury during his trial in the 2011 death of a 69-year-old woman.
Joseph Reiner picked up the tattoos while locked up after the attack. He showed up for a court hearing last year with devil's horn forehead tattoos that he apparently got from a fellow inmate.
The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reports the tattoos weren't visible during jury selection Wednesday in Mount Clemens.
The 28-year-old originally was charged with attempted murder and home invasion in the daytime break-in and attack on Joanne Eisenhardt, but he was charged with murder after she died months later.
The defense says prosecutors can't prove Eisenhardt's death was caused by the stabbing.
