Jury will watch Wisconsin TV interview of murder suspect James McVay

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A jury in South Dakota will get to watch a televised confession made in Wisconsin. 

The jury will decide whether James McVay should be put to death for killing a 75-year-old woman in Sioux Falls in 2011. 

McVay did not want the jury to see a TV interview he gave in Madison, where he was arrested. He told viewers he admitted killing Maybelle Schein and stealing her vehicle, so he could drive to Washington and assassinate President Obama while he plays golf. 

Judge Peter Liebermann has ruled that the jury can see the TV interview. 

Earlier, the judge agreed to let jurors read the confession he gave to police in Madison when he was picked up. He didn't the jury to hear anything about that, either. 

McVay pleaded guilty but mentally ill to a first-degree murder charge in the stabbing death of Schein. 

The jury will decide in March whether he'll get South Dakota's death penalty.
