A man accused of killing his girlfriend and his disabled daughter is representing himself. On Wednesday, he questioned the sole survivor of the attack, his 11-year-old son.

The Associated PressTAMPA, Fla. — Acting as his own lawyer, a double-murder defendant opened his death penalty trial by shouting at jurors that he did not attack his girlfriend and disabled daughter.On Wednesday, Ronnie Oneal III cross-examined his son, forcing the 11-year-old to describe exactly how he hurt him.

The defendant claimed in a dramatic opening statement that the evidence would reveal “some of the most vicious, lying, fabricating, fictitious government you ever seen.”Gesturing and pacing, Oneal shouted at one point during Monday’s opening: “I look alone. But I am backed by a mighty God.”

He claimed the girlfriend, Kenyatta Barron, attacked their two children and that he killed her in self-defense. The killings happened March 18, 2018, in their home in Tampa’s Riverview area.Assistant State Attorney Scott Harmon countered that prosecutors would prove Oneal wounded Barron with a shotgun, then beat her to death. Harmon also said Oneal used a hatchet to kill his 9-year-old daughter — who had cerebral palsy and could not speak — and wounded his son, then 8, with a knife. headtopics.com

Investigators say Oneal also set the house on fire after the attacks. The son survived and testified Wednesday by remote video that he saw his father kill his sister with the hatchet and recalled his mother being shot.During cross-examination, Oneal asked his son, “Did I hurt you that night?” The boy responded, “Yes.”

“How did I hurt you?” Oneal asked.“You stabbed me,” his son replied. He also described how his father set fire to the house using gasoline.Investigators say the wounded boy came out of the burning house and described what had happened.“The first words that came out of this brave boy’s mouth: ‘My daddy killed my mommy,’” Harmon told jurors.

Jurors also heard a 911 call from Barron in which she desperately sought help as Oneal yelled in the background.“OK, Ronnie, I’m sorry,” she says on the recording. “I’m so sorry. Help me. I can’t move my arm. My arm is shot up, Ronnie. Please.”Oneal contended that investigators fabricated evidence to implicate him and that his son was coached on what to say.

“The evidence is going to show that I love my children,” Oneal told jurors. “The evidence will not show you that my son witnessed me beat his mom to death, nor did he witness me shoot his mom. In fact, he didn’t witness much at all.”The trial is expected to last through the end of next week. Oneal could get the death penalty if convicted. headtopics.com

wtf shitlocks Madness Ah…represents himself…guess he goes for the insanity plea then?😑💩🔥 Never surprising women love a man like this. Is he going to try to appeal the conviction by arguing he had 'ineffective counsel?' I'm going to blame the judge for allowing this guy to represent himself. This cross examination didn't have to happen like that, and this child did not deserve to be traumatized again.

His barber should be put away aswell He definitely has a fool for a client. Claiming God is on your side has never ended well for most people. 🥴 The real secret is: you have to be on God’s side. 😇 But if you were, you wouldn’t be where you are in the first place. 😜 Dang. Dan Jenkins would have called this guy 'Wild Hair Wembley'

Lock his ass, throw the key away. Sounds like a slam dunk case for the prosecution

The kid will not tell a lie....gotcha, This courtroom spectacle shouldn't have been allowed to happen in the first place. What a waste of resources. Just find him guilty already! Thought you guys only ran with gun stories? did he stick his finger in a light socket one to many times? “He who represents himself has a fool for a client”

Bruh.... Johnny Cochran couldn't even help you even if he was living. Is this guy trying to look crazy or is he just crazy? Wow. If the judge allowed him to represent himself, he must want this guy to be found guilty. 😏 Only a fool represents himself... TeresaKAlley Oh I’m going to have to follow this 🤯

So sad and traumatic for the 11 year old. 😢💔 Poor kid!! Prayers for him he is going to need a lot of help! Throw the key away !! His dad deserves the worst! American perverts, cest normal When you represent yourself then you have a fool for a lawyer. When you loose...are you going to try to fire yourself and declare a mistrial..ask for a new lawyer..what?

Who in the hell let that happen!! Good Lord!!? When it comes to that kind of murder situation involving minor victims...gotta be a better way!! 170 likes? This man is a monster & people click like? This is very dark. Tìm bạn tâm sự vui buồn, nếu hợp nhau thì chuyện gì đến sẽ đến một cách tự nhiên thôi ...không ràng buộc nhau làm gì.

My guess is the jury is going to find this guy guilty. Just a guess . . . Court system should be swift w/o getting engaged in nonsense technicalities. And fry his brain asap

I’m sure he’d appreciate the way… 1/2

Sick and perverse and that's only starting with the judge who enabled this animal. Good old US of A Demon possessed... Sickening. What is wrong with him? How does that old saying go: A man who represents himself has a fool for a client. He will spend the rest of his in jail no matter who represents him ….this is just one last look at the outside world.

If this is not pure evil, I dont know what it is. Why was an 11 year old questioned in open court? Bu his father who murdered his mother and sibling? Hes already been traumatized I wonder who he voted for I'm usually not for the death penalty, but this one got me. That poor kid. Killing his mom and sister wasn't enough? You gonna cross examine him and call him a liar too? Jesus
