Wise's Defense Attorney says he was insane when he shot his wife.
The prosecution opened up by calling only two witnesses. The two security guards that got the 9 mm handgun away from Wise after he shot his wife Barbara.
They both testified they tackled Wise with a gun in his hand in her hospital room.
Matthew Milewski, an Akron General Hospital security guard, says "We saw Mr. Wise at the opposite end of the bed with a handgun in his hand. The slide was locked back on the weapon. I commanded him to drop the weapon 2 times. He did not comply. Officer Shepperd saw an opening, tackled him and I jumped on him as well. "
Both sides say Wise is the shooter.
The defense will call a doctor who will testify Wise suffers from a mental illness when he is under stress and depressed. Testimony resumes Tuesday morning.
