GREENSBURG (KDKA) – Prosecutors played a 911 tape in court today in which a Westmoreland County man admits having the gun used in a murder.
Richard McAnulty is accused of killing his wife’s boyfriend Harry Mears after reading e-mails about their affair.
Prosecutors said after shooting Mears at his home in South Greensburg, McAnulty went home and called 911.
Dispatcher: Do you have any weapons on you at all?
Richard McAnulty: Yes, sir. There is the weapon that was used tonight. It’s empty. The chamber’s open, the cylinder’s open, and it’s laying here on the chair.
Richard McAnulty: Do you want me to put it in the house? I can do that.
Forensic Pathologist Cyril Wecht testified Mears had been shot three times.
However, the fatal shot was the one that hit him in the back.
