May 22, 2007

Albany -- Five crime victims testified during the second day of the armed robbery and aggravated assault trial of two Albany men Tuesday.

Prosecutors say 19-year old Silas Jackson and 23-year old Michael Phillips robbed the five people at gunpoint in November 2005. All five testified in the morning.

In the afternoon Jackson's cousin testified that the day after the crime spree, Jackson put a gun to his head and threatened him for no reason.

The trial is expected to last at least two more days.
