Defense rests; closing arguments start Friday in 15-year-old murder
Michael David Mattson called himself a liar and a chicken -- but not a murderer -- Thursday in Douglas County Circuit Court.
Myrna Jean Clemons, 50, was found beaten to death on Feb. 19, 1993, in the home the two shared. Mattson was on Huber work release from jail that day to work the couple's scrap business. He was serving the jail sentence for two previous assaults on Clemons.
