Rape suspect confronts alleged victims in court, serving as own lawyer
Thirty-nine-year-old Arthur Lamont Henderson is representing himself in the case, which began Tuesday.
Henderson is charged with raping two women in their Ross Township apartments, just north of the city, and a third woman in Hopewell Township, about 20 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.
Allegheny County prosecutors say the rapes occurred last January.
Assistant District Attorney Laura Ditka tells the jurors the victims' lives were "shattered by the selfish, despicable acts of Arthur Henderson."
Henderson has denied raping the women.
Common Pleas Judge Donna Jo McDaniel has ordered Henderson to remain seated as he questions his accusers.
According to CBS Pittsburgh, one of the victims victim testified Tuesday she never saw her attacker's face, but during Henderson's cross examination she told him, "You had the gun pointed at me."
She reportedly cried several times during the testimony, but grew more defiant as the suspect questioned her.
