Murder trial resumes with defense's case

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The criminal trial of Anthony C. Flores continues this week in the Superior Court as the defense will present their case to the jury. The government last week presented their case in chief against Flores in three days.  They argue that Flores was responsible for beating Sherri Lea Taylor at the Hamilton Hotel in November 1999. 

The prosecution told jurors that Taylor died from internal bleeding that was caused by blunt force trauma.  The defense however intends to call forensic pathologist Dr. Joseph Cohen on Tuesday when the trial resumes, to suggest that Taylor died from a failed kidney and bad liver that was from excessive alcohol abuse. 

Flores has been behind bars for 12 years and was convicted several years ago but that conviction was overturned because of mid-trial publicity.
