Gigi Jordan's Temperament Becomes Focus Of Third Day Of Murder Trial

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Gigi Jordan's temperament became the issue during testimony by Susanna Mills, manager of Trump Tower, the condo where the defendant owns three hotel suites.

As WCBS 880's Irene Cornell reported, the building manager described Jordan's frequent frustrations that would have her shouting at her and the desk clerks.

Mills said that by frustration, she meant anger, and that if she made a note of every time Jordan shouted at her, she wouldn't have time to do the rest of her job, Cornell reported.

Mills located the missing Jordan at the Peninsula Hotel on the day she had poisoned and killed her 8-year-old autistic son, Jude Michael Mirra.

Prosecutor Matt Bogdanos said Jordan, who made her fortune in the pharmaceutical business, brought 5,918 pills to the hotel with her — including Xanax, Prozac, Ambien and hydrocodone. Bogdanos said in opening arguments that "there were enough pills in that room to fill a pharmacy shelf."

Jordan then used a pill crusher, orange juice and possibly vodka to make a poisonous cocktail that she forced into her son's mouth using a syringe, Bogdanos said.

On Tuesday, a hotel staff member took the stand. The waiter who delivered room service to Jordan at the Peninsula Hotel testified that he brought chicken fingers and carrots to room 1603 the night she checked in with her son. The boy was never seen alive again.
