Erica Cole just may have the worst criminal defense other than a confession. She shot her husband Nicholas Cole in the head but insisted that she was really trying to shoot someone else in a road rage incident. It is not much an improvement. She is charged with attempted murder, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment.
The road rage incident reportedly occurred on the highway near Dodge City, Alabama. The cars then continued the confrontation at a home on a local road.
The “I meant to shoot the other guy in the head” claim will not take you very far at trial. Nicholas Cole is still recovering in the hospital.
