Prosecution rests in Dillard/Coxwell trial

Went to the King County Courthouse this morning to check on the trial of ex-Huling Brothers sales staffers Adrian “AG” Dillard and Ted Coxwell, gavel.jpgsince we hadn’t heard anything since testimony began 10 days ago. While we were in the courtroom, the prosecution rested its case; the defense planned to start calling witnesses later this morning. DETAILS ADDED @ NOON: The last two prosecution witnesses, called while we were there, had testified earlier, but were brought back for more questioning — one was a former Huling employee, the other a Seattle Police detective. Fairly technical stuff — the ex-employee was asked this morning to identify various spots on photographs of the then-Huling dealership property and the apartment building where the victim in the case lived; the detective was asked about records showing vehicles owned by co-defendant Coxwell. We’ll keep checking on the trial as it proceeds in the courtroom of Superior Court Judge Nicole MacInnes in the days to come.

    Can I branch off on the Huling topic? This morning in the times, the article about a marksman appointed by the Navy to shoot and kill a coyote in Discovery Park contains quotes from Navy spokesperson “Rick Huling.” Somebody please tell me that he is not one of “those” Hulings.

    Don’t know if there’s any relation. The Huling Brothers who owned the dealerships are Steve and Tom. BTW re: the coyote, did you see the update, now it will be trapped, not killed.

    Just heard on KINGTV that the coyote is going to be trapped, but their going to euthanize it.
    Release it somewhere remote.

    They should euthanize those ex-Huling salesmen who stole from a handicapped person.

    I guess they think that they have to euthanize because it was doing what comes naturally…going after smaller prey, in this case a cat. If cats were kept indoors where they belong, then it wouldn’t happen. Domestic cats are not wild animals to be thrown outside to fend for themselves. Yes, it’s sad that the coyote harmed someone’s pet…but just take the coyote to the hills where it has a more natural habitat, IMHO….

    Euthanize the Coyotes I say for all you cats and doggie’s to be safe outside.

    The salesmen were doing what comes naturally also, stealing from people. I mean really, they were car salesmen.

Sorry, comment time is over.
