Watch video: Dad charges at murder defendant in Polk County courtroom
Circuit Judge J. Michael Hunter today declared a mistrial in the triple-murder case against Leon Davis Jr., and one victim's father jumped the courtroom railing and lunged at the defendant.
Court bailiffs restrained Richard Bustamante, but not until he got within a foot of Davis, who was seated at the defense table.
Bustamante's wife, Ebelia Rodriguez, began the affray when she shouted “You know you did this. You are guilty” to Davis moments after the jury filed from the courtroom.
