A jury last month convicted the 65-year-old of shooting and killing Paul Duncsak (DUN-sack) in Duncsak’s northern New Jersey home in Ramsey.
During the six-week trial, Ates’ defense rested on claims that he was too fat to have run up and down stairs to shoot Duncsak, then escape by driving more than 20 hours to his mother’s home in Louisiana.
The defendant Mr Ates claimed that he couldn’t possibly have killed his son in law. Why?- Mental insanity, he wasn’t in the room when it happened. No he was just too fat. Do you believe him? Should we believe him?
