ATHENS, Ga. – Jamie Hood appears to be becoming increasingly upset as he continues to mount his defense in this death penalty trial.
Hood has admitted to shooting and killing Athens Clarke County Police Officer Elmer "Buddy" Christian and wounding Officer Tony Howard on March 22, 2011.
On Thursday, Hood called his brother, Matthew Hood, to the stand. Matthew Hood recalled the events the night of the shooting. He said he was driving an SUV and ordered to stop by Howard.
At the time, officers were searching for Jamie Hood, who was suspected in a carjacking and kidnapping.
