The murder trial of Mitchel Toussaint entered its second day on Thursday.
Toussaint is charged with murdering his brother, Alexis Toussaint, of Bense in November 2011 in a land dispute.
The State led by state attorney Fernillia Felix called a number of witnesses including the wife of the deceased.
Police inspector George Theophille, a scene of crime expert who photographed the body of the deceased and the crime scene, also testified.
Cassandra Tousssaint, another witness, related to the court what happened the night of the incident.
She said it was a moon-lit night and about 2:00 am, she heard a loud noise. She said she lives about 15 feet away from where accused lives and thought he and his girlfriend were in an argument.
She said she went out and she saw the deceased on the ground with the accused standing over him. She stated that she saw the accused “make a lash” but since she was pregnant and scared, she went back to her home.
The police were eventually called.
Darius Jones and Ronald Charles are representing the accused.
The case continues in the court today (Thursday).
