Golatt Trial Opens...Defense Says DA Can't Prove It Was Murder
Izelia Golatt and Kristen Rodgers may have been together on the night that Rodgers died...but that doesn't prove Golatt killed her.
That's the defense case at the trial this week for Golatt, who's accused of strangling Rodgers during an apparent drug deal last March. Testimony on Monday was aimed at showing that Rodgers was attacked, and had signs of being choked. Defense attorney Alan Beattie opened the trial by arguing that the prosecution just doesn't have the evidence to prove the death was murder. The Golatt trial is scheduled for most of this week. The defense may start calling witnesses today.
