More witnesses expected to take the stand in Ezra McCandless trial

Local News

The defense in the Ezra McCandless homicide case had planned to rest its case on Wednesday, but instead, more evidence is expected to be presented in court Thursday.

Judge Peterson said he plans to send the case to the jury on Friday.

On Wednesday witnesses for McCandless included forensic pathologist, Dr. Lindsey Thomas, who earlier this week served as a defense witness in the Erik Sackett case

Thomas believes the injuries to 24-year-old Alex Woodworth weren’t immediately fatal. This seemed to back McCandless’ earlier testimony that Woodworth walked and talked after the stabbing.

Also taking the stand was trauma expert Dr. James Hopper.

He said people don’t always fight off an attack especially if they know the attacker.
