Woodward, Okla. —
Both the prosecution and defense attorneys seemed pleased with the progress made on the first day of trial.
"We're pleased with where we're at and we're ready to go forward tomorrow and present our evidence," ADA Boring said in a brief statement to The News after court was recessed for the day.
The defense seems equally eager to proceed.
"Mr. Yelloweagle is happy to have his day in court and we look forward to having the jury hear all the evidence," Scimeca said to The News.
Yelloweagle appeared in court Tuesday wearing a black pinstriped suit with a white shirt and blue tie. A group of about 7 of his family members and friends turned out in his support.
Several family members of the victim were also in attendance for the first day of trial.
The trial will resume today at 9 a.m.
