Clea on Trial: Opening statements and witness testimony


Malik Clea from South Carolina was charged with the attempted murder of William Jefferson back in June. Jefferson suffered from two gun shot wounds, one to the head and leg.

Today, in Oneida County Court, defense and prosecution gave opening statements. Clea’s Public Defender, Adam Tyksinski, told the jury that there will be a lot of doubt scenarios throughout the trial, “Look at the case all the way around, top to bottom, right to left.”

The prosecution stated that the evidence will tie Clea to the gun that was used along with money and marijuana that was taken from Jefferson.

More witnesses will give testimony for the rest of the week.
