The prosecution completed its case in the murder trial against Timothy Claytor on Tuesday.

On the final day of witness testimony for the prosecution, Claytor’s ex-girlfriend, Laura Ann White, who as at Claytor’s home at the time of the fatal shooting testified and said that the victim, Dale Holloway never hit or abused her. She was unclear about the events of the shooting, however, saying that she could not remember many of the details because she was drunk at the time.

Phil McKinney, who drove White to Claytor’s home on the night of the shooting, also testified and painted a picture of Holloway being a dangerous man.

“This is not an ordinary individual,” McKinney said. “This is somebody you do not what to have a tussle with.”

McKinney also said that Holloway was “a guy you do not want to run into when he is mad.”

Claytor is claiming that he shot and killed Holloway in self defense.

Several witnesses also testified about the physical evidence that was gathered at the scene, which indicated that Claytor was the one who shot Holloway.

Today, the defense is expected to call its witnesses and conclude its case.

Final arguments and jury instructions will be on Friday morning.
