ITHACA – An Ithaca man accused of killing a UPS driver from Candor said in court last week that not only did he believe he shot and killed Donald Trump, but that no evidence could be presented to him to suggest otherwise.
Justin R. Barkley, 38, said during his arraignment and subsequent attempt to plead guilty: “I shot and killed Donald Trump purposely, intentionally and very proudly.”
He told the court that he knew where president elect Donald Trump would be on Thursday, December 8, and waited in the Ithaca Walmart parking lot to kill him.
“I went there to purposely shoot and kill him and put him down,” Barkley said.
