Update on Capital Murder Trials

Al Bellamy, in Iredell County: The State rested in its guilt case, but not before turning over 1800 pages of detectives notes to the defense that hadn't been shared before. The judge continued the case to Monday, when he will hear the defense's motion for a mistrial, due to the extensive discovery violations.

James Richardson, in Pitt County: The State is moving through its guilt phase evidence. Today, it put on an eye-witness, claiming to identify the defendant as the shooter, who had never been interviewed by police and only came forward 2 weeks ago to tell his tell (after months and months of media blitz in the case, including nearly 100 articles in the local paper/television).
