McIver, 75, is charged with malice murder in the death of his wife, Diane, whom he shot in the back while the two rode up Piedmont Avenue in their Ford SUV in 2016. The DA says the shooting was deliberate and premeditated. The defense says it was a tragic accident.
Our new “Breakdown” episode brings you up to date on developments since the judge delayed the start of McIver’s trial in October. It also profiles the three lawyers who will try the case: the prosecution wants a life sentence; the defense says McIver did not mean to shoot his wife and insists that the state can’t prove otherwise.
This episode acquaints you with Rucker’s “muddy waters” tactic, as well as the times Harvey was cited for contempt by judges who didn’t appreciate his antics in court.
