The prosecution says Wyngarden killed his sister Gail and her husband Rick Brink out of jealously and to cover up an incestuous relationship when the siblings were teens. Both victims were shot in the head in their Ransom Street home.
Lee Fisher, attorney for the prosecution, said Wyngarden told police in several interviews that there was penetration between Wyngarden and his younger sister Gail.
“This was the kind of information you didn’t want people to know about,” Fisher said, and Wyngarden’s explanations have been an attempt to rationalize what Fisher called molestation.
“Wouldn’t it be interesting to hear Gale’s version of this,” Fisher said.
Wyngarden continued to be told by the judge to answer questions and not ramble or interrupt the attorneys.
The trial resumed into the afternoon.
