Chaos erupts in court after man admits to murder

Chaos erupted in a Steubenville, Ohio courtroom Monday afternoon after a father went out of control at a murder trial.

The father of a murder victim jumped over a courtroom table and started chocking the man who had just admitted to killing his son.

It took police officers several minute to subdue the screaming man once they were able to pry him off the suspect.

Police were finally able to remove the father from the courtroom.

The judge then ordered the murder suspect out, as well as the rest of the victim's family.

The defendant was sentenced to 33 years to life for aggravated murder.
