Ohio man Van Terry launched himself over a courtroom table with the agility of an NFL player after his daughter’s killer mocked him during sentencing on Thursday.
Terry was addressing the court as convicted killer Michael Madison sat behind him smiling and laughing.
“How are you doing, your honor? My name is Van Terry, father of Shirellda Terry. Right now, I guess we’re supposed to, in our hearts, forgive this clown,” he said moments before turning around and launching himself at Madison, according to NY Daily News.
Madison was sentenced to death after murdering three women in Ohio. Terry’s daughter Shirellda was the last of his victims before the killer was arrested.
Cleveland police won’t comment on whether Terry will face any charges.
