Murder suspect's lawyer says client is paranoid schizophrenic

TALLDEGA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - The trial continues for a man accused of murdering his employer in Talladega County.
     
Fred Allen Walker is accused in the shooting death of Jerry Harrell. The crime happened four years ago at Harrell's business, "Motorcycle Sports", near Oxford.

On Tuesday in court, jurors watched a videotaped will from the suspect claiming various people were trying to kill him by piping gas into his home.

Walker's attorneys argue Walker suffers from paranoid schizophrenia and is not guilty by mental defect. Prosecutors say Walker made statements to police indicating he knew what he did was wrong.
