Va. Couple Testifies about Bizarre Home Invasion Attack

Posted:

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - A McLean lawyer and his wife have testified about surviving a brutal, bizarre home-invasion attack that prosecutors say was carried out by another pair of lawyers.

Leo Fisher described at a preliminary hearing Tuesday in Fairfax how Andrew Schmuhl forced his way into Fisher's home, shot him with a Taser and eventually slit his throat.

Police say Andrew Schmuhl and his wife, Alecia, planned the November attack on Fisher and his wife in retaliation for Alecia Schmuhl getting fired from Fisher's law firm.

Fisher's wife, Susan Duncan, wept as she described seeing her husband attacked and his throat slit. She was shot in the head and stabbed.

Fisher said Andrew Schmuhl pretended to be a law-enforcement officer during the attack and interrogated him about his law firm.
