It is day 5 of the retrial of Michael Dunn for 1st degree murder. Court ended yesterday with the defense bringing on character witnesses. Then, the judge and attorneys started going over jury instructions.
Dunn’s previous trial took 6 days, and that included the state’s rebuttal case. Today, we just might hear from Dunn.

Justice For Jordan!
We continue following the 1st degree murder retrial of Michael Dunn. Trial is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. EDT.
Judge Healey instructed the defense to have at least one witness for this afternoon. He expects for the prosecution to rest its case. If things go like they did last time, the defense might take a day and a half, followed by the prosecution conducting a rebuttal.
The defense plans on calling Michael Knox, who is a reconstruction consultant. He reconstructs car accidents. If you’re not familiar with Michael Knox, during Zimmerman’s trial, LLMPapa did a series of videos proving Knox wrong regarding how Trayvon Martin was shot. Rather than use garments, Knox used cardboard in his reconstruction. Our BlushedBrown wrote about it on this blog.
This time, Knox did not go on television showing his reconstruction. Judge Healey has ruled that Knox cannot use animation at trial. We’ll have to wait and see if Knox comes to court with cardboard representing the SUV, its rear seat, and Jordan Davis. Actually, we’ll have to wait and see whether Judge Healey allows Knox to testify as an “expert.”
