dismemberA Colorado man is being accused of murdering and dismembering 16-year-old girl will plead insanity at his trial.

During the opening statements of the trial, Edward Romero’s attorney said that he doesn’t remember what happened and that jurors should find him not guilty by reason of insanity.
