A 66-year-old man faces a murder trial after telling police he was drunk and angry at two female neighbors for interfering with his love life when he fatally shot them at a Detroit senior citizen home.
He's accused in the Oct. 20 killings of 59-year-old Deborah Socia (SOH'-shu) and 61-year-old Maria Gonzalez at the Pablo Davis Elder Living Center where all three lived.
In a videotaped statement played in court, Reda tells police he was angry at the women for getting between him and his longtime girlfriend, who'd broken off with him.
He admits the killings but says he didn't mean to shoot Socia.
Defense lawyer Bryan Sherer declined comment.
