This Just In: Defendant Took Cyanide After Guilty Verdict
As reported on Happening Now, an autopsy report has found that a former Wall Street trader who collapsed in court after being found guilty of arson and later died committed suicide by taking cyanide.
Below is more information out from the Associated Press on the breaking news:
The Maricopa County medical examiner's office says in a report released Friday that toxicology tests showed that Michael Marin had the poison in his system.
After he was
found guilty of arson in June, Marin put his head in his hands and appeared to put something in his mouth. He then drank from a sports bottle.
It was a bizarre ending to a case that began in 2009 when he emerged from his burning Phoenix-area mansion in scuba gear.
Prosecutors said he torched his home when he couldn't keep up with the payments. Marin faced seven to 21 years in prison.
