DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ga. - Testimony began Wednesday in the capital murder trial of the man accused of stomping a Douglas County teenager to death during a house party.
The prosecution played dash cam video from the car of the first deputy to arrive at the scene. It showed teens running away from the party. It also showed deputies and, later, EMT's doing CPR in an attempt to save Tillman's life.
The Medical Examiner later determined the savage beating tore a hole in Tillman's heart.
Frankin's attorney, Bruce Harvey, did not deny his client's involvement in the beating. But he will try and convince jurors it was not premeditated or planned in any way in an attempt to keep Franklin off of Death Row.
Testimony will continue Thursday.
