A Kansas man awaiting trial for first-degree murder is afraid that his tattoo might make jurors think he committed the crime without even hearing his defense!
His tattoo by the way - a mirror image of the word ‘murder’ in all caps across his neck!
Jeffrey Chapman now wants to either have his tattoo covered for his day in court OR have it professionally removed!
Prosecutors aren’t so keen on that idea though. They’re willing to allow Chapman to cover his neck but he will NOT be able to leave prison in order to have it taken off of him completely.
The trial is set to start Monday. Chapman is accused of killing Damon Galliart, whose body was found by hunters in a roadside ditch.
We’re not jury members on this case but we have to admit, we’ve reached our own verdict just by looking at that pic!
