Want to move murder cases along rather quickly? Just schedule the case around Monday Night Football. Meet Nathan Burris. He’s accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and her friend back in 2009. Flash-forward to 2012 and Burris not wanting to miss his football game back on the jail TV.
But on Monday, a man accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend and her male friend in a shotgun rampage at the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge toll plaza snapped his fingers as he asked a jury to find him guilty quickly so he could be back in jail in time for “Monday Night Football.”
“I did it. So what?” said Nathan Burris, 49, who is representing himself in his capital trial in Contra Costa County Superior Court in Martinez. “No remorse, no regrets, no mercy. … You want me to draw it out in crayon?”
No word if the court forced Burris to sit and miss the Saints-Eagles game.
