Trial for Workplace Shooting Begins
(2008-04-21)
(wgvu) - PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - A jury has been selected for the trial of
a man charged in an April 2007 shooting at a Troy accounting firm
that left a receptionist dead and two managing partners wounded.
Anthony LaCalamita III is charged with first-degree murder in
the April 9, 2007 shotgun slaying of 63-year-old Madeline Kafoury
and assault with intent to kill in the shootings of Paul Riva and
Alan Steinberg at the accounting firm.
Defense attorney Jerome Fenton during his opening argument said
LaCalamita's extensive history of mental illness is to blame for
the shootings. Assistant Oakland County Prosecutor Rob Novy says
LaCalamita shot his former co-workers because he was furious over
his firing four days earlier.
The trial for the 39-year-old Troy man is taking place in
Oakland County Circuit Court.
