GRANTS PASS, Ore. — In Day Two of the murder trial against a Grants Pass man accused of killing his neighbor, witnesses took the stand.
Kiley Hudson is accused of stabbing his 60-your-old neighbor Gary Solamon to death a year and a half ago. In court on Tuesday, the prosecution called two neighbors to the stand, both detailing the sequence of events on July 11th, 2011.
Steve King testified, saying he heard arguing from his home and watched the beginning of the argument from his window. He said as he approached the scene, it turned physical.
“Pushing and shoving,” King said in court. “You couldn’t see actual punching, but you could see arms moving back and forth.”
During the cross-examination, the defense questioned King’s account, pointing out he was fifty feet away from the argument. The trial is expected to continue for two and half more weeks.
