Man Accused Of Murder Says He Was Too High To Have Told The Truth During Police Interrogation
An Ohio man headed to trial for murder now says he was too blazed off that ooo-wee to have told the truth when he confessed to the murder during police interrogation.
A man on trial in a murder over stolen electricity said in a suppression hearing Tuesday he took so many drugs before police interviewed him that he had no idea what was going on.
Michael Paige, 20, of Bennington Avenue, who is on trial in the March 2 death of Munir Blake, 31, testified before Mahoning County Common Pleas Court Judge Maureen Sweeney that he smoked marijuana all day before he was arrested, including in the parking lot of the police department before he turned himself in.
Paige said he also took a methadone pill and a Percocet pill in the parking lot in addition to the marijuana and was not able to focus during his interview.
”I was so high I just really had no idea what was going on,” Paige said.
During his interview the day after the murder, Paige made incriminating statements that his defense team wants thrown out.
Smh. A fool.
