Video Reenactment To Be Allowed At Murder Trial

Video Reenactment To Be Allowed At Murder Trial

A video reenactment of the death of a Mitchell woman will be allowed to be used as evidence in an upcoming murder trial.  The Mitchell Daily Republic reports that Judge Bruce Anderson denied a motion from Kent Davidson’s attorney to exclude the video from Davidson’s murder trial.  The decision was made at a motions hearing yesterday at the Brule County Courthouse in Chamberlain.  The 36 year old Davidson is accused of shooting 26 year old Crystal Schulz in March at her mother’s residence in rural Chamberlain.  Davidson and Schulz were engaged, but court documents say Davidson shot her because she was ending the relationship.  Davidson’s trial is scheduled for January.
