Husband researched Oscar Pistorius murder case before slaying wife, prosecutor says
WASHTENAW COUNTY, MI – The case involving a husband who shot and killed his wife claiming he mistook her for an intruder two years ago is eerily similar to the high-profile murder case against Paralympian Oscar Pistorius, prosecutors say. Jurors began deliberations Thursday, April 28, in the case against Bryan Anthony James, on trial for the murder of his wife, Ashley. During a long investigation by the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office, detectives discovered several questionable searches in James’ cell phone leading up to the shooting including him looking up the Oscar Pistorius case. Pistorius shot Steenkamp through the door of a toilet cubicle in his home in 2013 claiming he thought she was an intruder, an argument with which jurors disagreed and ultimately convicted him. “The price of him starting a new life was Ashley’s life,” Danner said.mlive.com
