Certain Words Makes Man Snap

Thomas Mitchell was found guilty for aggravated assault in the
shooting of his girlfriend.  He shot her because he thought she
was going to say the word "New Jersey."  His lawyer said certain
words caused Mitchell to snap such as "Wisconsin," "New Jersey,"
"Snickers," and "Mars."  Mitchell who is 54, covered his ears in
court when these words were about to be said.  The witnesses had
to use flashcards instead.  Mitchell was said to be troubled but
not crazy.  On March 19, 1999 Mitchell was convicted to shooting
his girlfriend three times because he thought she was going to
say "New Jersey." His girlfriend however survived the attack and
died from other causes before the trial had begun.

She was crushed between a giant snickers bar and a mars bar whilst travelling through Wisconsin on the way to New Jersey!
