The second day of testimony has wrapped up in the Christopher Bell murder trial.
Several witness for the state took the stand, one was Vandy Johnson, the mother of Ted Mueller's children. Mueller has already been convicted and sentenced in the case.
Johnson testified that following the murder of Cedric Watt, Christopher Bell made Mueller hold her hostage and threaten her. But the defense argued that Johnson never mentioned the hostage situation in her original deposition.
Evansville Crime Scene Detective Todd Lincoln also testified and showed jurors photos of the murder scene. The photos showed Cedric Watt lying face down on the sidewalk in the 1000 block of Delaware Street. Lincoln testified that Watt was clenching a small bag of marijuana in his right hand.
In cross examination, the defense asked if anything at the crime scene indicated the defendant Christopher Bell was at the scene and Lincoln responded no.
The trial is expected to wrap up Thursday. The defense has two witnesses left to testify. We'll be in the court room Thursday, so stay tuned to 14 News.
