The trial against Jonathan Ochoa continued on its fourth day Friday.
Ochoa is charged with six felony counts including premeditated murder in the fatal baseball-bat beating of Kendall Smith, 34.
In court Friday, prosecutors brought Detective Eric Frost from the Yuma County Sheriff's Office to the stand. He was at the crime scene April 18, 2012, after Smith died.
He said he talked to Christopher Solis -- a familiar face in court. Solis recently learned his charges in connection with an unrelated attempted homicide at the El Encanto apartments last month. Frost says Solis was not cooperative.
“He started off being really loud,” said Frost. “He was upset, and a little on the aggressive side." From the scene, Frost recalled several pieces of evidence.
Presented to the jury: an Arizona Cardinals hat with blood stains, and pictures showing foot impressions at two locations of interest in the case.
Frost said deputies found Ochoa hiding out in an apartment about two weeks after the shooting. From the witness stand, he demonstrated the tactics they used to talk Ochoa out of the apartment including slamming his fists on the desk, shouting to come out, and describing where he pointed the laser of his firearm on Ochoa’s body.
Fifteen of the 16 jurors observed today's testimony. They will adjourn Tuesday morning where the prosecution may rest its case.
