Why has Johnny Depp been called into a murder trial?

Johnny Depp has somehow been dragged into strange court case, by a solicitor who wants to prove his client is insane.

Depp was served legal documents while he was attending his premiere of his new film, Transcendence.

The woman on trial is Nancy Lekon, who has been accused of knocking over and killing a pedestrian in L.A., five years ago.

Lekon is going to stand trial this month, on the plea of not guilty by reason of insanity.

So, what does Johnny have to do with any of this? Well Nancy’s legal team plans to prove that their client is insane, as Nancy is convinced she was in a relationship with the Pirates of the Caribbean star, when the incident took place.

Nancy apparently told officers at the time when she was arrested, the only reason she was in the area was to meet her boyfriend Johnny Depp.

We are going to assume  Johnny will testify, as he’s never met Nancy.
