Testimony in Charleston Wells' murder trial continues
JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ala. —
Testimony continues in the Charleston Wells murder trial. Wells is accused of killing Mike Gilloti outside his Lake Cyrus home in January 2016.
Jefferson County's Assistant Coroner's revealed the Iraqi War Veteran was shot on the right side of his back and his body had two holes.
The assistant coroner's testified Gilotti was wearing a black sweatshirt and orange t-shirt when he was killed. Prosecutors showed pictures of Gilotti's injruies as the assistant coroner explained to jurors what they were seeing.
The pictures showed an entry wound on the right side of Gilotti's back and an exit wound on the right side of his chest. The assistant coroner testified the injuries did not indicate the distance of Gilotti's shooter.
Wells, the accused shooter, watched jurors look at the pictures. Several jurors moved to the edge of their seats, some wiped tears, covered their mouths, clicked pens and shook their heads.
The assistant coroner testified he did not find a bullet, but know it went through Gilloti's back, hit the right lung and left through the chest making blood pour out of the lung and rest in one of his body's cavities. Death occurred when blood stayed there and stopped flowing.
