Court to Determine Munt’s Sanity 26 Sep 11

The second phase of Joel Munt’s trial begins today. Defense attorneys are set to argue that Munt was insane when he fatally shot his ex-wife Svetlana Munt in front of his three children in a Mankato park last year. Last week a Blue Earth County jury found Munt guilty of first-degree murder and 16 other counts. Munt testified last week that he felt as if he somehow left his body and became a spectator during the shooting.
