Pros is asking Nicholas about call.
Pros: At what point was an ambulance dispatched? Nicholas: I don't know.
Nicholas says he was focused on getting info from caller.
Dispatchers do not send ambulances. That is handled by others after call is received.
They're discussing that now.
The def is saying the times written down as the time the call was received and the time the police were sent "don't jive."
He hasn't clarified this.
The next witness is Officer Sim. Hes going to take a while.
So we're done for the day.
Sounds like Unruh will testify. The 911 call was made after the stabbing.
From testimony, it sounds like the stabbing was in the bedroom or near the doorway to the hall.
Thanks everyone. We'll be back at about 8:30 a.m.
We will, but he's not testifying until tomorrow. Maybe I didn't explain that very well. Since his testimony is going to take a while, they decided to break for the day instead of calling him.
We're back in the courtroom and waiting for the judge to get here from another hearing.
Judge Romanick just came in.
Jury isn't in here yet. Lawyers are having a sidebar with the judge.
Today's witnesses are expected to be numerous law enforcement officers, including Officer Sim, who was first on the scene.
Nope. The TV stations are here but don't do live feeds of court hearings, and we don't have video equipment here.
Lincoln PD Chief Marcel Sim is on the stand. He's only been chief 3 months and was an officer at the time of the April 16 stabbing.
Sim spent 5 years as a NYC Police officer. Also has been a firefighter and is a paramedic.
His April 16 shift began at 10 a.m.
At about 7:50 pm, Sim was dispatched to Unruh's house. The dispatcher informed him that there might have been an unwanted male in residence. She then informed him that they were "not sure what's going" on at the house.
Took him about 2 min to get to house.
When he got to house he turned his car off and walked up driveway. Garage door was open. No cars in garage. A pickup was in driveway.
Pros: Did you have concerns about situation?
Sim: Yes. I upholstered my department-issue taser as I was walking up to house.
The front door was "wide open" as he approached.
He saw Unruh's daughter through the doorway.
He heard loud music coming out of house. He gestured for her to stop and held his finger to his mouth to direct her to be quiet. He then motioned her to go downstairs. She did. He then entered the house.
As he walked in house, he announced his presence. He was met by Unruh in house.
