Court: Eisnor Breaks Down on Witness Stand

The judge overseeing a hearing to determine whether or not a New Germany man is fit to stand trial on a charge of first degree murder will issue a decision next month. A two day fitness hearing for 49 year-old Wayne Paul Eisnor concluded this afternoon in Bridgewater Provincial Court. Eisnor is accused of shooting his wife in a Barss Corner grocery store parking lot in June of 2010 before turning the gun on himself. He suffered significant brain damage as a result and told court this morning he recalls parts of his recovery but doesn't remember the shooting. He was found unfit to stand trial in October 2010 because of a mental impairment caused by the self-inflicted gunshot wound. Hoever, Crown Prosecutor Alonzo Wright argues Eisnor's condition has improved significantly and is fit to stand trial for murdering his wife. Eisnor broke down a number times on the witness stand when asked questions about his son and daughter.  Judge Gregory Lenehan will issue his decision on April 3rd.
