Accused to Take Stand in UMD Student Beating Case Day Three
Day two of the trial consisted of witness testimony.
Day three of the trial of two officers charged with beating a University of Maryland student will likely see both officers take the stand. The defense is set to present its case.
Day two was full of witness testimony and the stories of officers who were on the scene that night when Officers Reginald Baker and James Harrison were accused of beating up John McKenna, according to an ABC 7 report.
Jurors viewed footage of the incident while officers present that night took the stand.
The officers were clearly uncomfortable testifying against their fellow officers. One testified Baker confided to him that he was embarassed by what happened that night. Another told the court he never heard a police command made to McKenna before or during the assault, according to the ABC 7 report.
