Good afternoon. For the record, I'm Kathi Alizadeh with the Prosecutor's Office. Also present is Sheila Whirley with the Prosecutor's Office, and all 12 jurors are present today and as well as the court reporter who is taking down everything that's being said as well as audio recording the proceedings that are going on this afternoon.
As you can tell, we've kind of rearranged. We're trying to figure out how to best work the room with the equipment that we have.
As you can see this screen kind of moves. Do you see the wind, the air blowing on it? It is blowing on the screen, but not on you, unfortunately. So we're going to try this out.
If this is too annoying, we'll next time try something else out, but this is a bigger screen and we thought maybe it would be easier for everybody to see it. If everybody gets car sick because pictures are kind of wiggling on there, we will figure something out.
Also, and we have some additional fans, I'm going to try to bring another fan in tomorrow to make it a little more comfortable. I'm doing the best I can as far as the heating and cooling.
So my understanding that you all are going to be able to be seated today from 1:00 to 5:00; is that correct? And so for today we've scheduled two witnesses. The first witness is here and it will be another crime scene detective.
His name is Detective And then the second witness that's going to testify is the medical examiner who conducted the autopsy, his name is Dr. and because of his schedule, I'm going to tell Dr. probably isn't going to be here until two, he's going to get here as soon as he can.
If we're not done with Detective we are just going to interrupt his testimony because he can very easily come back on another day. It is hard for me to get the doctor here. He is going to be going out of town, so we might have to interrupt Detective and bring him back to finish up with whatever questions or additional we have with him, okay?
So with that being said. DETECTIVE of lawful age, having been first duly sworn to testify the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth in the case aforesaid, deposes and says in reply to oral interrogatories, propounded as follows, to-wit:
