Testimony has resumed this afternoon in the first-degree murder trial of Marc Thomas Sylvester.
This morning jurors watched a videotape that crime scene investigators took of the field where they found Jennifer C. Warren’s body on Feb. 9, 2009.
The camera pans across the windswept field along Book Drive in eastern El Paso County. There’s a farm house in the distance and mountains to the west. The wind is intense as it whips the yellow crime scene tape.
Warren’s body could be seen laying in a ditch between dirt road and a barb wire fence. She had been shot in the head. Her sandal-clad feet pointed toward the road.
This afternoon, a witness is identifying a hunting rifle that he lent to Sylvester in December 2008.
