    Lahners says trial to run long r
imjali irom page 1 ,
On Thursday and Friday, Stewart
said the shooter was Washington.
Under questioning from Lahners Fri
day afternoon,
Stewart said that
he was first unsure
it was Washing
ton, then 100 per
cent sure, after the
third of three
“Is there any
question in your
mind that Riley
Washington was y...
the person who wasl*lil|ton
shot Jermaine Cole?” Lahners asked.
“There is no question in my mind,”
Stewart said.
But Eggers pointed out two sepa
rate times that Stewart said in court
under oath that he could not positively
identify the shooter.
She also askf^y&wart about two
other instances where he said he
couldn’t identify the shooter — once
to a police officer and another to a
public defender’s office investigator.
“You never told (Lincoln Police)
Detective (Greg) Sorensen, who you
knew to be a police officer, Riley
Washington was the shooter?” Eggers
“Correct,” Stewart said.
Eggers also hammered away at
previous testimony where Stewart said
he did not see the second and third
shot because he was running the other
way. He testified that he saw only the
gun on the first shot.
Stewart testified Thursday that he
watched the gun on the first two shots
and saw the shooter on the third be
fore he ran. He said he did not run
until after the third shot, despite his
previous testimony.
Apparently attempting to help his
witness, Lahners asked Stewart if
there were any details he could have
left out from an event that happened a
year and a half ago. Stewart said yes.
Lahners also asked Stewart about
being an unwilling witness. Stewart,
■ T .
a convicted felon who was testifying
in a corrections uniform, said he had
tried to avoid going to court.
“I didn’t really want nothing to do
with this,” he said. “I was already go
ing to court for things, troubles that I
had. I was tired of going into the court
More prosecution witnesses are ®
expected to be called Monday. K
Lancaster County District Court Judge m
Bernard McGinn had told the jury the ®
trial could end as soon as Wednesday, |
but Lahners said Friday that it would m
last a few days longer. ™
In other court-related news:
Muhammed, another former ■
Husker wingback, was arrested in tfj
Omaha for possession of 4 pounds of J
marijuana. He was being held on sus- m
picion of possession with intent to ■
deliver. ^
Muhammed had been subpoenaed _
as a defense witness, but it was un- I
clear if he was to testify or not. He is ■
still subject to the subpoena.
Corrections j*
An error was made in the gay marriage story that ran in
the wedding guide last Friday (Jan. 24). Th§ church the couple
attends is First United Methodist Church, not St. Marie’s
United Methodist Church.
Also, the rings the couple exchanged were pearl and alex
andrite, not pearl and Alexandria.
