The homicide trial for Glen Johnston, who is accused of fatally shooting another man who was reportedly having an affair with his wife, continued on Tuesday.
The second day of testimony began with a forensic pathologist who performed the autopsy on the victim, Jude Srock.
He told the jury that Srock was reportedly under the influence of alcohol and marijuana at the time of his death, and reportedly had a blood alcohol content of .24, which is three times the legal limit.
“A person at his level would have a hard time walking a straight line,”
The defense asked if Srock’s level of intoxication could have made him more aggressive, to which the forensic pathologist agreed.
The jury was also shown a recording of Johnston’s initial police interview after he was taken into custody.
Johnston appeared very emotional in the video and stated that he was upset with the comments that Srock had reportedly made about his wife.
He also reportedly apologized to police and claimed that he never intended to kill Srock.
