Speaking of weird lawyers:

Susan Wright sobbed Wednesday as two prosecutors acted out their version of how she stabbed her husband 193 times on her bloodstained bed.

Wide-eyed jurors watched as an assistant district attorney lay sprawled on the bed with his wrists and ankles tied to bedposts with neckties and terrycloth sashes.

Lead prosecutor Kelly Siegler climbed on the bed and straddled her colleague as she continued to question a homicide detective about the killing of 34-year-old Jeffrey Andrew Wright on Jan. 13, 2003.
