Posted: Updated:

Guam - The government expects to wrap its case against Anthony C. Flores tomorrow when they call Medical Examiner Dr. Aurelio Espinola to the stand. Espinola is expected to present his theory on how Sherri Lea Taylor died. 

The prosecution contends Taylor died as a result of internal bleeding that was caused from being beaten. The defense contends she died from liver damage as they allege she was an alcoholic.  They will present their own forensic pathologist, Dr. Joseph Cohen, via videoconference to present the defense theory.

Taylor was found badly beaten at the Hamilton Hotel in November 1999. Daniel Pocaigue, Jr. and others have testified that Flores was responsible for beating her with a telephone and a chair.  Taylor died four days later at Naval Hospital.

The trial resumes on Thursday morning at nine o'clock.
