Day two of Levi King's capital murder trial continues Friday afternoon. The focus thus far has been on the autopsy results of the Pampa family King admitted to murdering on the morning of September 30, 2005.
The medical examiner who conducted the autopsy took the stand and said all three victims suffered multiple gun shot wounds. Thirty-one-year old Brian Conrad was shot three times, his stepson 14-year-old Zach Doan was also shot three times and his mother, 35-year-old Michelle Doan was shot five times. It is important to note that Michelle was also pregnant.
The state has dropped all charges in the death of the unborn child but there was some debate between the defense and prosecution as to whether it was appropriate to show photos of bullet fragments lodged in the head of her unborn child. The judge said those photos were admissible. At that point many of the same family members who left the courtroom Thursday during the crime scene photo slideshow also left Friday morning before these graphic images were shown.
The family who did stay in the courtroom sat close together, comforting one another during the photos. King kept himself occupied throughout the testimony by doing some sort of sketching on a notepad. The trial is expected to wrap up for Labor Day weekend on Friday afternoon and will continue Tuesday.
