State v. Jones - Prosecution rests; defense recalls Frost
The prosecution rested its case in the State v. Kevin Jones trial at the Franklin County Courthouse this morning. Before the prosecution concluded its part, 5th Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney David Gibbons called Bobby Humphries, an Arkansas State Crime Lab latent fingerprint examiner, to testify about his opinion of two sets of fingerprints lifted from a floor lamp, the alleged murder weapon. Prosecution expert Tom Bevel testified regarding his reconstruction of the crime scene and what he termed several items he believed the killer may have placed in order to “stage” the crime scene and divert law enforcement’s attention in another direction.
I have been on the radio in Little Rock, Arkansas since 1983. Think of me as an unreliable liberal. My great grandfather fled the famine in Ireland and became a Captain in the Confederate army. My dad worked for the GM&O Railroad. I am an orthodox Anglican, a catholic of the Reformation and a student of academic theology. Make that a Wellers and Coke, please.
