State Rests in Winn Dixie Robbery Case

State Rests in Winn Dixie Robbery Case

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Ala. -

The state has rested on day three of the Jackeith Harrison trial.

He's charged with 5 counts of attempted murder and one count of robbery for the March 2012 standoff at the Winn Dixie in midtown Mobile.

The state rested around 11 a.m. Wednesday morning after calling up dozens of witnesses and seeing a substantial amount of video and pictures from that night.

Today, the jury spent more than an hour listening to the interrogation of the defendant the night he was arrested.

The jury heard and saw detectives pushing Harrison to tell them who organized the robbery.

Detectives say he and Ronald Crear had too much knowledge about the layout of the store and the routine of the employees to have done it alone.

Finally, Harrison admits that it was an inside job and Collier Kirksey, who was an employee at Winn Dixie, had planned the whole thing. However, they are unable to get him to confess to shooting Officer Wynne.

News 5 spoke with Harrison's attorney Bob Clark Wednesday morning. He had questions about the lack of fingerprints on all of the evidence.

Now, it's the defenses turn to call some witnesses this afternoon. The jury is expected to start deliberating within the next few hours.

Stay tuned to News 5 for more updates on this trial tonight at 5 and 6.
