Murder Trial Underway

By March 6, 2018News

Cordera Calloway is standing trial as the man police believe is responsible for the murder of 26-year-old Cordera Johnson. Defense Attorney Lauryn Lauderdale is arguing there’s no evidence, specifically DNA evidence that shows Callaway was at the apartment the night of the murder. The prosecution is accusing Calloway of lying to police and claims evidence will show he was at the apartments. Calloway and Johnson had an altercation hours before the murder happened, according to prosecution attorneys. Several witnesses took the stand yesterday including an officer who responded to the scene, a representative from a cell phone company to see if Calloway made a call in the area of the murder, and a woman who lived at the apartments and tried to help Johnson after he was shot. Investigators uncovered 10 shell casings on the scene of the murder, but who was behind the trigger is for the jury to decide. More information on what happened that night is expected to come through witness testimony and evidence by the defense and prosecution over the next couple of days.
