Grisly autopsy photos of Holly Maddux made the courtroom audience gasp yesterday, but accused killer Ira Einhorn intently stared at the giant image of his former girlfriend's smashed skull projected on a screen at his trial.
Einhorn, 62, put on his wire-rimmed glasses to look more closely at the colored images of Maddux's corpse. He raised his arm to point out details to his defense team. And at one point, he turned to his attorney and smiled.
"That was a really inappropriate reaction," Maddux's sister Meg Wakeman later angrily told reporters.
Another sister, Elisabeth "Buffy" Hall, said: "It's beyond description, what it feels like... . It makes your stomach hurt. It makes you sick."
