Curtis Stanton must have misunderstood the phrase demon on the dance floor.
On September 13, 2008, the now 42 year-old Memphis man paid a visit to girlfriend Regina Tidwell, 34, at a dance club. As Stanton explained in a statement to the jury on Wednesday, February 15, Tidwell was not interested in dancing with him.
“That’s when I first started hearing voices in my head, telling me to kill her. I guess it just stuck with me,” he said.
