Dorbad Retrial Continues
It's day two in the retrial of a man who is accused of shooting his live in roommate. Leo Dorbad says the shooting was an accident, but prosecutors say he meant to shoot her.
On Tuesday, the jury heard the 911 call made by Dorbad back in June 2006. During the call, Dorbad admits to shooting his live in roommate Dawn Luciano, but maintains it was an accident. The defense urging jurors to just look at the facts and make no assumptions. The prosecution wants justice for Luciano.
"Ms. Luciano died there that night and my client was present. No other allegations will be proven without a reasonable doubt. No crime that suggests that you at the end the only legal verdict will be not guilty."
"Ladies and gentlemen, at the conclusion of the case, I suggest that you would find the only appropriate verdict in this case to be second degree murder."
The defense is expected to call their witnesses later in the week. According to Dorbad's lawyers, he is expected to take to the stand in his defense.
