Talk-show host Jenny Jones will testify today after all in the murder trial of a guest who claims he was driven to kill by a segment on secret admirers.

Circuit Judge Francis X. O'Brien on Wednesday reversed an earlier ruling, deciding that Jones may be questioned about the 1995 episode during which Scott Amedure revealed a gay crush on an acquaintance, Jonathan Schmitz.

Jones' testimony had been sought by lawyers for Schmitz, who is on trial on charges of shooting Amedure to death three days after the taping of the show. Defense lawyers don't deny Schmitz shot Amedure but say he was humiliated on the show and suffers mental and physical problems.
