The third day of testimony in the murder trial of Michael Dunn began at 9 a.m. Monday.
First witness of the new day was Sukahn Warf, an expert on forensic serology for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
Next state's witness was Maria Pagan, a crime lab analyst with the FDLE who specialized in firearms.
Pagan showed how Michael Dunn's gun worked and discussed the shell casings found on the ground at the scene and the bullets removed from the SUV.
Under questioning from State Attorney Angela Corey, Pagan said it would take a conscious effort to fire the gun like that.
Defense attorney Cory Strolla asked Pagan if she had the serial number of the gun, and when she replied that she hadn't recorded it, he called other aspects of her expert testimony into question.
Medical Examiner's Office pathologist Dr. Stacey Simons was the next prosecution witness.
State Attorney Angela Corey questions Dr. Simons using several pieces of physical evidence, as well as photographs.
Jordan Davis' parents were in the courtroom at the beginning of the day, but stepped out during the ME's testimony, which included photographs, X-rays and graphic descriptions of the victim's fatal injuries.
Simons points out entry and exit points of bullets on the clothes Jordan Davis was wearing Nov. 23, 2012.
The state also used dowels in a manikin to show the direction that bullets when through Jordan Davis' body.
The prosecution rested its case after Simons, its 27th state's witness. After lunch, Strolla began calling defense witnesses.
First up, three neighbors who live in the fly-in community in Brevard County where Dunn lives. From left: Randy and Beverly Berry have known Dunn since 2006 and occasionally socialized with him, but under cross examination admitted they weren't close. Frank Thompson testified hemet Dunn through his father and they flew together on weekends.
Next called were a Gate employee not called by the prosecution, Darrion Ates, and Michelle Reeves, who works in the plaza next door. They were questioned about what they saw and heard, the lighting conditions, surveillance cameras, etc.
Many court-watchers expected the victim's father, Ron Davis, to testify for the state, so there was some surprise when the defense called him to the stand. Strolla tried to get Davis to impeach his statement in a deposition about what was said when the three teenagers with Jordan that night came to his house a few days later. Instead, Davis said Strolla defined "it" differently than it was intended.
Next up, the defendant's son, Chris Dunn, whose wedding earlier that day is what brought Michael Dunn to Jacksonville.
The younger Dunn said he was trying to reconnect with his father, who he had only seen three times in the 15 years since his parents divorced. The son said his father seemed happy to be there and did not have too much to drink.
Next to the stand was Dunn's ex-wife, Phyllis Molinaro, who said they got along fine during the wedding.
The final family member to testify was Lexi Molinaro, Chris Dunn's 18-year-old sister. She said everyone got along at the wedding, but she admitted under cross-examination that she hardly knew the defendant.
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office homicide Detective Travis D. Oliver Sr. was called to the stand and questioned about the child-safety locks on the Dodge Durango and a tripod found under the seat.
The 11th and final defense witness for the day was Don Moes, a fellow software engineer who worked with Dunn on projects for several years. He called Dunn a friend.
The jury was dismissed for the day about 4 p.m. so Judge Russell Healey and the lawyers could discuss scheduling for the rest of the trial and the language that would be used when charging the jury prior to deliberations.
Michael Dunn is accused of first-degree murder, three counts of attempted murder (one for each of the other teenagers in the SUV) and one count of firing missiles into an occupied vehicle.
Healey said he might be optimistic, but he believes the defense could wrap up by lunch on Wednesday, with closing statements in the afternoon. If that's the case, the jury would begin deliberations on Thursday.
