Day 4 of Hudson Murder Trial Underway
The third day of the Kiley Hudson’s trial for murdering Gary Salomon started Wednesday with Hudson’s wife still on the witness stand, as a hostile witness for the prosecution. She testified Kiley smoked marijuana and always carried a large folding knife.
Debbie King, a neighbor was next testifying that because of Hudson’s posturing and elevated voice she thought he was the aggressor. She did see Hudson run to his house.
Francisco Miranda, a friend of both the Hudson’s and Salomon, was next on the stand saying Salomon lacked the strength to take Hudson down.
The prosecution next called Detective Heather Yerrick who conducted a video interview with Hudson shortly after the stabbing and presented the video in which Hudson said Salomon pushed his wife prompting Hudson to tell him to back off. Then Salomon hit Deanna. Hudson told Detective Yerrick the fight was escalated when the neighbor, Cliff Eggleston, intervened by attacking him.
Detective Yerrick was still on the stand throughout the morning and into this afternoon. The detective show photos of Hudson’s injuries, an inch to two inch superficial scratch on the left side of his neck and a mild abrasion on the outside of his right arm.
The detective also played audio recordings of Hudson while he was incarcerated. Suspects are informed their phone calls will be monitored and recorded.
