Update: Richard and Penny Brighton murders *Jacob Brighton’s attorney, Marc Shiner, said ‘parents deserved to be shot’ as Jacob Brighton’s murder trial begins”

The defendant says he was sexually abused by his father for several years. He said his mother knew about it but did nothing. However, the defendant, Jacob Brighton, did not say anything about this abuse until nearly 2 years after his arrest. That does not mean that he is being truthful, or lying. But, as for these 2 murders, he did not shoot them right after an abuse situation, but rather, he planned it out, just waiting for the right moment.
