The prosecution's last witness took the stand today. This is now day five of the trial, and it looks like the trial is winding down.
The prosecution has called 26 witness since last Thursday: friends of the men on trial, Jennifer Ross' friends who were eyewitnesses, doctors and police officers.
The last person on the stand is the lead detective in this case for the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department, Don McCutcheon.
Prosecutors called upon Det. McCutcheon to help tie together all the evidence and testimony presented to the jury so far. The detective interviewed the eyewitnesses and interviewed many of the defendants' friends.
Michael Thorpe, Webster Wilson and Kevin Huckabee are facing life in prison if convicted. We're not sure at this point if their attorneys will put up a defense. Their tactic so far has been to discredit the eyewitnesses and the defendants' friends.
And the attorneys went after the lead detective on the stand. They wanted to know why he didn't look for any white suspects, why he didn't find the murder weapon, why he believes Sean Thorpe--the man who admitted he was with Thorpe, Huckabee and Wilson when Jennifer Ross was shot.
