Court resumed at 9:15am. Sean Thorpe was excused as a witness with no further testimony. Many were surprised how short his time on the stand was. He testified he was with his nephew Michael Thorpe and his friends Webster Wilson and Kevin Huckabee last Christmas Eve.
He said he didn't have a gun or hurt anyone. The defense harped on the fact he was given immunity and police gave him $1,200. He said the money was to help him get out of town because there were threats against his life.
The prosecution called Ivory Bowens to the stand. He testified he was with Sean and Michael Thorpe, Webster Wilson and Kevin Huckabee before Jennifer Ross was shot on Christmas Eve.
Bowens is currently in federal custody. He is doing federal time for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Bowens said Sean Thorpe talked about going to get a "lick," going to rob someone.
Bowens said he then saw the four men again shortly after the shooting. He said they talked about the shooting and Sean said he got scared and ran away.
