Will be presented with a cell phone records.
And then there's been testimony from the -- And it won't even presentation of witnesses and evidence.
That you won't learn faster in this case as -- -- on March 5.
I believe you'll find from the evidence that the forensic -- its female thing.
DNA evidence doesn't tell you when it got there for how.
That shows that Kelly par which had any reason to commit to -- its.
-- no connection to.
Well testimonies about resume this morning in a murder trial that is gaining national attention you just heard opening arguments in the case of the so called.
Female James Bond.
Kelly -- park is accused of -- murdering a woman you see on your screen here modeled -- reading five years ago.
Prosecutors claim park was essentially carrying out -- hit.
That she strangled the young woman in retaliation for ratings father pulling out of a business deal.
They claim DNA links parked to the crime scene.
Now the defense is arguing the forensic evidence won't prove park is guilty and that she didn't have a motive for murder.
Fred TC is a former federal prosecutor -- Hackett with criminal defense attorney.
Fred you say that the defense has a tough road a -- here.
They claim these two women didn't know each other.
That they had no connection to one another and therefore there could mean no murder motive for murder but there is something called money.
Fred well there's a lot of stuff.
Like that there is money.
And CEC you -- I think these things out before you tell the jury that.
Beat -- that these people that know each other but that woman's DNA was in the victim's apartment on the victim's neck on the victim's cell phone and a bloody fingerprint.
-- so what you're seeing -- Alec -- talk about this is what these defense lawyers do.
Is they don't want to look at the evidence -- -- to look over here this doesn't tell you that there's no motive which is an annulment of the crime looked everywhere else.
He's a very tough case the money lines up this guy -- that this woman was a female James Bond although I don't think that's gonna come and I think the evidence pretty compelling against the woman from the prosecution's.
Theory -- is that is that Dick -- C park murdered -- reading.
Because reading his father had backed out of a business deal the guy who hired -- was not happy about it and -- descend.
Less -- and wanted to teach a lesson to his putative partner.
That's right but I think that they're going to have some trouble thinking -- park to.
This transaction that occurred between -- father and the doctor.
I think here at the defense strategy is really going to be key and it's going to be important to see whether the defense can get in this alternate story that they say occurred.
Which is that John Gilmore hurt her boyfriend who is violent toward her actually committed the killing and not miss Clark well they don't have the evidence though that he was violent -- ordered -- to -- They they don't jump -- -- evidence that he was violent toward her.
Aren't right -- teenage -- -- they have no evidence to support that theory it's just something that was made up and the judge precluded it.
But it but -- what about it I mean Fred points out they found.
Tell leasing parts DNA.
On the victim I mean if these two women had never met.
How does that happen.
park certainly at some point was in that apartment and we don't know exactly how evidence is going to play out what the defense is going to say with respect to -- parks.
Presents with an apartment should certainly if -- forensic evidence is conclusive then she wasn't that apartment sometime Fred.
Yet probably like right before the murder I mean it's in and the money that -- up this is doctor.
Has was paying this woman hundreds of thousands of dollars and I'll tell you something else John the evidence is as does doctor -- com doctor no from like James Bond do what's Billy James Bond.
Doctor know fled the country right here that the defendant in this case got arrested you know we call that -- -- come from.
Flight is evidence of consciousness of guilt so I mean I think a lot of the stuff winds up and it's a circumstantial case and good defense lawyers like candidate -- -- do the best they can but I think at the end I don't think it's going to be enough.
If Fred was saying -- that that the -- is is trying to distract trying to you know give -- -- jewel give the jury a shiny object to look at.
Is that what this amounts to this case from the from the this defense standpoint.
At that possibly there trying to show that the evidence is circumstantial and that it is not strong enough to show beyond a reasonable -- that it wasn't as parks that killed threatening.
And then we'll keep an on and carry -- Fred TC.
Thank you grab me.
An interesting case for sure it is it's.
