Reno Man Who Killed Wife, Shot Judge Wants Retrial

Posted: Updated:
A Reno man appealing his conviction for murdering his wife and trying to assassinate the judge handling their divorce in 2006 told one of his lawyers at the time he believed he was justified in shooting a "corrupt" judge but worried about being viewed as a "nut-case with a rifle.'
 
Darren Mack also told then-Reno defense lawyer Scott Freeman during a jailhouse meeting five months before his trial any plea deal must not undermine his ability to spread his message about family court corruption.
 
Freeman, who now is a Washoe County district judge, described the meeting in a 2007 memo to co-counsel.
 
The memo recently was added to exhibits Mack attached to his latest federal appeal claiming he received ineffective counsel. Judge Robert Jones agreed Monday to extend until July 31 the deadline for prosecutors to respond.  (AP)
