Then, Green put the truck in reverse and drove forward and over Pitts, despite pleas for him to stop, Davis said.
“He literally ran my mother’s head over,” Davis said.
In court on Friday, Chief District Attorney Ryan Leonard told the judge that Green called family members and friends and asked them to contact jurors to explain his side of the story, Channel 2 Action News reported. Prosecutors played a tape of one of the conversations Friday morning in court.
Green’s attorneys had argued that he suffered a seizure before the crash and didn’t kill the woman intentionally.
After the guilty verdict Friday afternoon, Green’s family called the trial unfair and said he was innocent, Channel 2 reported.
"They disallowed some of the best evidence that proved my son hit his head, had a concussion and seizure and that was that,” Green’s father, also named Dewey Green, said. “He requested he be given a polygraph test.”
Sentencing has not yet been scheduled.
