Deckert takes stand in his murder trial

Testimony in the Britt Deckert murder trial resumed this morning at 10:30am following about two hours of behind-the-scenes legal maneuverings by both sides. Once the jury was called to the courtroom, Phyllis Caroline Vasseur, now known as Emmabelle Caroline Deckert, was recalled as a witness for the defense.

The defennd then took the stand.

Deckert, 27, is accused of killing his half-brother AJ Vasseur with what some have described as a Wolverine type claw – a reference to the fictional superhero of comic books and movies.
