Medical Examiner Continues Testimony in Hudson Murder Trial
The trial of Kiley Hudson for the Murder of Gary Salomon continued Tuesday morning with the Medical Examiner, Dr. James Olson, still testifying.
After seeing two photos of subjects in hypothetical positions the Doctor testified it would not be possible to inflict specific wounds in those positions. Dr. Olson also testified the abrasions on Salomon’s shins could have been caused by Hudson’s boots; it would not take a great deal of force to inflict the fatal wound and he did not see advanced emphysema during Salomon’s autopsy.
The Dr. did say adrenaline could cause a physical enhanced condition.
The day ended with state criminologist Jeff Dovci still on the stand after the defense asked about a missing page from his October report from the state crime lab. After a brief recess
Dovci returned after he had the missing page faxed to the courthouse.
The October report was a draft and the final report issued in November by Dovci’s superiors showed the supervisor’s had a different opinion from Dovci, and Dovci’s report was changed in the final draft. The defense also told Judge Hull all emails concerning the report had not been given to them.
The Judge will give his ruling on the missing emails when the trial continues this morning with Dovci still on the stand.
