GOVERNMENT'S RESPONSE TO MOTION FOR NEW TRIAL

Declaration of Ronald K. Wright, M.D.


(1) I reaffirm the facts and opinions of my affidavit of February 15, 1984.

(2) In analyzing the severe blow to Colette MacDonald's head, the handedness of the person cannot be determined with certainty. Individuals intoxicated with psychomimetic drugs or enraged by their wife cannot be presumed to strike with their handed side. Therefore, while perhaps slightly more often forceful blows delivered from a deceased's right to left are delivered by left handed folk (adjusting for their minority status); it is certainly not unusual to see such a blow delivered by a right handed individual.
