The decision to go with Armin’s more subtle approach was unanimous.

After his arrest following the murder of 12-year-old Kimberly Leach, Ted Bundy decided not to represent himself in court like he had previously, instead handing over the responsibility to defense attorneys Julius Africano and Lynn Thompson. Their strategy was to plead not guilty by reason of insanity, a plea that was risky but one of the few available options open to the defense.

The plea of insanity might not have been difficult for the seven women, five man jury to believe. Unlike the other hearings, Bundy became increasingly agitated throughout the trial. At one point he even lost control and stood up yelling at a witness with whom he disagreed. It appeared that his facade of confidence was beginning to fade, probably because he realized that he had already lost the war and this legal battle wouldn’t make much difference in determining his fate.
