Pathologist Testifies Drugs Found in Victim

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. –A possible self-defense argument is emerging in a Tri-Cities murder trial.

A forensic pathologist Monday told jurors Franklin Palmer had methamphetamine and amphetamine in his system when he died of three gunshots.

Scantling's attorney Scott Johnson suggests Scantling may have acted in self-defense when he shot Palmer last March in the Kennewick home of Ann Krebs.

Benton County Prosecutor Andy Miller says Scantling planned and carried out the murder because he was jealous of Palmer's relationship with Krebs, his ex-fiancé. Krebs and Scantling have two children, who were in the home when Palmer was shot.
