A Marlboro man now says he was suffering from a mental illness when he shot and killed his supervisor at the Brattleboro Food Co-Op last August.
According to the Brattleboro Reformer, Richard Gagnon's lawyer told a judge Tuesday that the 59-year-old's illness and related depression played a role in the killing.
Gagnon allegedly shot 59-year-old Michael Martin in the back of the head because he was upset about a work evaluation.
Gagnon's trial is slated to begin in October.
