Jesse Freeman: It was self defense

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The man accused of killing his estranged wife and her friend took the stand in his trial Wednesday and claimed self defense.

Jesse Freeman admitted firing 3 times, but said he did so after seeing Allen Ramsey pull a gun on him and his 7 year old daughter. The 43-year-old testified he never saw his wife Lenora in the truck.

After his testimony, the state called Freeman's adopted son Caleb to the stand. The 18 year old testified that 3 days before the shooting his parents argued and Freeman threatened to kill his mother.

Caleb Freeman said that argument was the last time he saw his mother alive.
