A love triangle murder trial continues as the prosecution rests its case.
It’s day eight in the trial of Robert Hall – the man accused of murdering Emmett Hall, who was sleeping with his wife.
The day started not in the courtroom – but in the parking lot of Walgreens in Meridian. That’s where the jury visited the site where Emmett Corrigan died last March.
The 15 jurors (three of them alternates) said nothing as they walked the re-created crime scene, referring to trial notes and taking notes.
Back at the courtroom, the Prosecution wrapped its case. They played audio recordings of Halls’ jail phone calls to Kandi Hall - his wife and Corrigan’s mistress.
The defense made a motion for the court to dismiss the case, saying the state didn’t have enough proof. The judge dismissed the motion.
On Monday, the defense will take up their case. They’re expected to call a number of witnesses, including Robert Hall’s daughter, and a doctor who is expected to testify Hall has retrograde amnesia from a bullet that grazed his head.
The jury may begin deliberations on Tuesday.
