Trial to Begin for Man Accused of Killing Son While High on Bath Salts
Trial is this week for a southeast Missouri man accused of killing his son while high on synthetic drugs.
The Poplar Bluff Daily American Republic reports that jury selection was scheduled for Tuesday, with the trial expected to last through Friday for 43-year-old Charles Goforth of Catron.
Twenty-year-old Patrick Joseph Goforth was fatally shot in May 2012 inside the family home. Another of Charles Goforth's sons, Josh Goforth, said during a preliminary hearing that his father had been using bath salts for several months and was seeing imaginary people, even occasionally firing shots at the imaginary people.
