The local Sun Sentinel newspaper reports he is accused of murdering his girlfriend in her bedroom.
Patterson, 65, claimed the death of Francisca Marquinez, 60, in October 2015 was an accident when she choked while performing oral sex. He wants the judge’s permission to show the jury his penis to prove his girlfriend choked.
The pensioner from Margate, on the south coast near Fort Lauderdale, has previously admitted choking Marquinez but has so far never publicly said how, the paper reported.
Now his claim has been made, his attorney Ken Padowitz said the size of his manhood is key to his defence when his trial starts.
