Man accused of beheading his 7-year-old son

Posted: Updated:

THIBODAUX, La., (KNOE 8 News) - Experts testifying court say that a man accused of beheading his disabled 7-year-old son and leaving the head in his yard really thinks the boy was a robot or a ventriloquist's dummy.

A psychiatrist and a psychologist testifying for Jeremiah Wright have told state District Judge John LeBlanc Tuesday that they don't think Wright is faking a delusion about Jori Lirette.

Testimony continues is winding down in the sanity hearing for Wright, who is charged with first-degree murder of Lirette.

Judge LeBlanc must decide whether Wright can help his attorneys and is fit to stand trial or whether he must return to a psychiatric hospital
