Evidence At Stratman Trial Includes Photo Of Bottle In Victim's Car
Law officers testifying at a La Crosse homicide trial are being asked today about a bottle of vodka found inside the car of a teenage driver who was killed.
Jurors were shown a photo of the bottle discovered in Brandon Jennings's car after his collision with Sheriff's Deputy Trisha Stratman on Highway 35. Tests showed that 16-year-old Brandon had no alcohol in his system at the time of the crash. Other testimony today has dealt with what speed Stratman was driving while on the way to a police call.

Ver Gowe estimates that Stratman was moving up to 90 miles an hour at the moment she hit the Jennings car.
