A man accused of tying up and killing another man in an eastern Pennsylvania motel and then taking a cellphone video of the bloody victim and saying, "I do what I want" is alleging that the victim sexually assaulted him.
Twenty-seven-year-old Jeffrey Knoble took the stand in his own defense Monday in his Northampton County trial in the March 2015 death of 32-year-old Andrew "Beep" White.
Knoble said he had been up for four days doing meth when he awoke to find the other man naked and kissing his neck. He said he "just snapped" and felt like he was on "autopilot" as he put a pillow over White's head and shot him.
