Scorned Lovers Week: TN vs. Eric McLean

There’s no dispute that Eric McLean, 31, shot and killed 18-year-old Sean Powell outside McLean’s home in Knoxville, TN.  The question is was it pre-meditated murder or an accidental killing?

Watch: Coming soon: Scorned Lovers Week

Prosecutors say McLean was jealous because he believed Powell was having an affair with his 29-year-old wife, Erin.

Erin McLean had been Sean Powell’s teacher and, according to the defense, Sean Powell started taunting Eric McLean about taking his wife and kids away from him.

Eric McLean admits he killed Sean Powell, but says he didn’t mean to do it. Knowing a conviction could send him to prison for life, Eric McLean takes the witness stand in his own defense. Watch the dramatic testimony and aftermath of TN vs. Eric McLean during Scorned Lovers week, after the Jodi Arias trial on In Session.
