He was hung from his own petard.
"For ítis the sport to have the enginer
Hoist with his own petar, anít shall go hard
But I will delve one yard below their mines,
And blow them at the moon. "
I remember this case well. I paid particular attention to the "leg cramp" defense" as I suffered severe leg cramps from marathon running and felt is could be possible.
This case was much like the Theodore Wafer case in that the accused's words come back at trial to haunt their defense. Without those words, they can't haunt. Do not under any circumstance talk to police following some emergency where a person might be charged. Just don't. There is nothing you can say that will allow you to be released and not charged. Name, rank and serial number is all you should be saying. The only goal in life for police is to arrest and charge a person. Let them do their thing and you do your thing, which is nothing.
"It sure is hot out there today isn't it officer? That's all I have to say."
You may have to sit for hours and pee your pants. Witness abuse is rampant. Expect it and keep cool under fire. You could have a happy ending.

Rodney Warren Crawford remains in Ionia State Prison. I grew up with this nut job. He robbed drug dealers for money. He got carried away one night and shot his victim in the chest with a 12 Ga shotgun! What a nut!
He was a normal kid who lashed out at the world when he hit puberty.
Nobody is predestined to be a killer.
I do think though that we all have it in us
to kill, and a millions reasons to justify why.
