    Jury In Murder Trial Hears Suspect's Recorded Statement
    Office of Northwestern District Attorney

    Jurors in the trial of a Massachusetts man charged with killing a 95-year-old man and severely injuring his 77-year-old wife during a home invasion in 2016 have heard a recorded statement he made to police.

    The Recorder reports that jurors in the double murder trial of 25-year-old Joshua Hart on Tuesday heard a recording made by police in Virginia in which Hart recounts the attack on 95-year-old Thomas Harty, who used a wheelchair, and 77-year-old Joanna Fisher, in their Orange home. Fisher died several weeks after the home invasion.

    Hart and a co-defendant fled to Virginia, where they were captured.

    His co-defendant, Brittany Smith, awaits trial. Both have pleaded not guilty.

    Hart's attorney blamed the killings on Smith.

    The jury is expected to get the case Friday.
