Opening Statements In Trial Of Man Accused Of Killing Wife’s Co-worker, Forcing Beheading

(Keene,N.H.)  A New Hampshire man faces trial on charges of killing his wife’s co-worker after he discovered they were texting, and then forcing her to behead him after she drove with the body for 200 miles to a remote campsite.

Court documents say Armando Barron and his wife were teens when they got married and had three children, but their relationship was troubled. She wanted a divorce.

Prosecutors allege that Barron used her cellphone to lure her co-worker, 25-year-old Jonathan Amerault, to a park just north of the Massachusetts state line one night in September 2020.

There, he violently assaulted him and eventually shot him three times in the back of Amerault’s car.

He’s pleaded not guilty.
