(Fox News) Jurors on Thursday heard jail calls in which a suspect charged with fatally shooting a woman and wounding seven people at a Nashville church in 2017 laughs about it with his then-girlfriend.
The October 2017 calls were replayed in court Thursday in the Nashville trial of 27-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson. Jurors began deliberating in the afternoon and will resume Friday.
A transcript of the calls shows Samson said he heard the shooting victims saying “some funny (expletive)” when he was on the floor of Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in September 2017 after being shot during a tussle with a churchgoer.
Samson says in one of the calls that he and his then-girlfriend are able to “look at the humor in any situation.”
