The prosecution rested its case yesterday against Michael Dunn.
The defense called Michael Knox, the former Jacksonville Police Department crime scene investigator. Testifying as an expert witness on crime scene reconstruction, he said he had no doubt that “the right rear passenger door to the Durango was open when Dunn opened fire, and it’s his personal opinion that the lower half of Davis’ body was out of the vehicle at that time.”
Dr. Stacey Simons, a pathologist and former medical examiner who autopsied Jordan Davis’s body, testified that he was sitting in the back seat leaning away from the back door when Dunn fired the fatal shot.
The defense is attempting to persuade the jury that Knox is more qualified to accurately inform the jury about Jordan Davis’s position when he was shot.
The jury will have to decide whom to believe.
Meanwhile, Dunn is on the stand now.
