The Stutzensteins wanted Arthur Jackson to move out of their quaint two-story farmhouse on a rural stretch of Route 9N. The 41-year-old ex-convict, who rented a room from the couple, was acting inappropriately toward Carol Ann Stutzenstein and was in the process of being evicted, defense attorney Terry Kindlon explained Sunday. But before the local court could act, Jackson entered the Stutzensteins’ bedroom late Thursday evening, precipitating a brawl that resulted in Mark Stutzenstein being ...

How could you print heresay? Were you there? Was his family there? Only those that were there know what really happened.

Irene,

The account was given by Terry Kindlon, the accused's attorney. He seemed quite convinced that what he was saying was an honest account and the charges against his client would be reduced at the very least. I simply reported what he is claiming as a defense after interviewing both Stutzensteins, not hearsay. Certainly, it would have been nice for the prosecutor to comment on them, but he was unavailable Sunday.

I was questioning the comments of the first poster (ruthfleming) as being heresay. Unless any of us were there, we don't know what happened, and neither does his family. And if you follow Mr. Jackson's criminal history as described in the article, it would NOT appear he had stayed out of trouble for a length of time. It would seem his was in trouble AGAIN around 5 years ago.

I know the parents of Mark Stutzenstein. They are loving, kind, and very nice people, and I really do not think they would have raised a killer of any sort. I feel that Mark was put in a situation where her just wasn't thinking clearly as he was beaten very badly and A.Jackson also gave him a concussion while he was beating Mark. My feelings are that Mark just snapped and wasn't thinking clearly at this point. Just what would you do if someone is pounding on you and chased you all over the house just to beat you?I think you would think of something to save your own life, wouldn't you? Heresay??? is just that. The facts will come out and clear Mark in this awful senerio. I really feel sorry for Mark. Giving a room in his home to a Policeman's worst nightmare. This is not the first time A.Jackson was in trouble. He has a "RAP SHEET" of various rape and violence against others, one being pregnant.It wasn't in Marks' makeup to kill just to make A.Jackson stop with an injury and not death. After all I do really beleive A.Jackson was going to kill Mark first. He was a real crazy man. He should have been watched very closely by the authorities after all he had done in the past.
