Cell phone expert testifies in Crisp Co. murder trial

CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

The second day of testimony wrapped up in the murder trial of Keontay miller in Crisp County.

Miller is accused of gunning down Tellis fort outside his home last May in Cordele.

Jurors heard from a cell phone expert, who testified that according to tower records, Keontay miller's phone was in the vicinity of the scene.

His attorney argues that that doesn't mean Miller was in possession of it.

Before that, jurors heard from several folks from the GBI.

The lead agent spoke about the early stages of the investigation and what led them to their suspects.

The medical examiner also took the stand and the crime scene specialist walked the jurors through the scene.

One of the biggest statements came from the firearm examiner who fired three test rounds through a pistol recovered near the crime scene.

That ties the pistol to the shooting, but so far, evidence has not tied that pistol directly to Miller. Prosecutors said in opening statements that his DNA was found on his gun.
