MARTINEZ (CBS/AP) — A double murder defendant has told a Martinez jury to convict him quickly so he can see “Monday Night Football” at the jailhouse.
49-year-old Nathan Burris used a shotgun to kill his ex-girlfriend and her male friend at the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge toll plaza in August 2009.
Burris, who is representing himself in the Contra Costa County Superior Court trial, snapped his fingers on Monday and told jurors he’s guilty.
He said he has no remorse and no regrets. He asked them to convict him quickly so he can watch football on TV.
Closing arguments were scheduled for Tuesday.
Burris faces a death penalty phase of trial if he’s convicted of murder with special circumstances of lying in wait and killing multiple victims.
