Thursday October 4, 2012 9:14 SNAndyHoag

Thursday October 4, 2012 9:21 SNAndyHoag
RT "@melissa_wick: can Bluews ex wife testify?" >> she is on the pros. witness list, which also means O'Farrell could call her, but ...
Thursday October 4, 2012 9:24 SNAndyHoag

Bowman begins opening an evidence bag:
Thursday October 4, 2012 9:43 SNAndyHoag
Now discussing the swabs of the blood stains found in and around Webb's vehicle. This is all tedious, but important, admitting of evidence.
Thursday October 4, 2012 9:46 SNAndyHoag

Thursday October 4, 2012 10:01 SNAndyHoag
Bowman: "Possible" for DNA on exam gloves to be transferred to another object. In other words, if I put exam gloves on ...
Thursday October 4, 2012 10:03 SNAndyHoag
