Makeup used to hide defendant's horn tattoos on forehead

Makeup costing sixty dollars is being used to hide a Michigan defendant's forehead tattoos from a jury during his trial in the 2011 death of a 69-year-old woman.

Joseph Reiner picked up the tattoos while locked up after the attack. He showed up for a court hearing last year with devil's horn forehead tattoos that he apparently got from a fellow inmate.

The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reports the tattoos weren't visible during jury selection Wednesday in Mount Clemens.

The 28-year-old originally was charged with attempted murder and home invasion in the daytime break-in and attack on Joanne Eisenhardt, but he was charged with murder after she died months later.

The defense says prosecutors can't prove Eisenhardt's death was caused by the stabbing.
