For the heck of it I took a look at the front page of the Mountain Democrat website this morning and they've changed something since I wrote the post about Day 3 yesterday afternoon. This morning's version of the paper has a photo of the reenactment they did in the courtroom yesterday. (Shame on me, I copied the photo and then enlarged it a bit.. lol) Here's the photo and the caption from the paper's website:
Democrat photo by Krysten Kellum REENACTMENT~ Police Lt. Kim Nida, left, and prosecutor Dale Gomes demonstrate for the Mountain Democrat what they had shown jurors just minutes earlier ~ a reconstruction of the events as Mario Lozano recalled them that led to the killing of Placerville resident Kacie Barron. Nida and Gomes conducted the demonstration in an attempt to show jurors that Lozano's statements weren't feasible. Sitting in the background are public defender Michael Atwell, left, and murder defendant Lozano.
It's still frustrating not to be able to read the articles on that website.. I wish there were other reporters in that courtroom! Anyway, it's an interesting photo. Notice the gallery seats behind Lozano and his defense attorney. Empty! Notice Lozano slouched down in his chair and not looking at what the prosecutor and the police-woman are doing.
