Def says he didn't see smear marks on floor in photos. Asks why this is.
Sim: First off, it was bandaged. I was occupied, so I didn't really notice whether Theresa's blood on the floor.
Should have been "whether there was a lot of blood on the floor."
Def asks about saline solution.
The saline solution won't carry blood to organs.
Def: Just by looking at Randy, you could tell things were bad?
Def asks Sim to describe what it looks like when a person deteriorates for blood loss.
Sim: Initial signs are dilated pupils, rapid heart rate, sweatiness. Blood is steamed from extremities. Patient becomes grey in color.
Def: an untrained person could see this ashencolor?
Sim: Yes. Anyonecould see news in serious condition.
Def: Asks if Sim knew Unruh by name.
Sim: I had some information about him. I didn't personally know him, no.
The courtroom is pretty full again today, if anyone was wondering. Everyone seems to be paying pretty close attention to the testimony.
Def: Did Unruh use the word prostitute? Did he call her a whore or a slut? Or was it prostitute?
Sim: He said, "We hired a prostitute, we were having sex with her and she stabbed him."
Def is asking about order of events with regard to Unruh's daughter.
I'm not sure who is who, but friends and family of Albaugh do seem pretty shaken at times.
Now getting to questions about moving Albaugh out of house and Sim's medical treatment of Albaugh.
We're taking questions. Not comments.
He hasn't shown much reaction.
Def is now asking about Dr. Fairbarin (first witness to testify)
Yes, they met Tasha at Hooters. She testified she was in Bismarck looking for a job, but she initially told police she came to get drunk.
Sim gave Fairbairn a history of the incident.
Def is asking whether Sim said "please" when he asked Unruh to turn down the stereo.
Sim: I didn't think that was necessary.
Def: So the relationship between you and John started off bad?
From the testimony, it has been unclear when an ambulance was dispatched. 911 dispatcher thought one was sent, Sim testified he called for one after seeing Albaugh's condition.
Sim: I wouldn't say bad. I'd say defiant nd uncooperative.
Def: Didn't John tell you to, help Randy?
Sim: Randy started that by saying "Help me, man. I'm dying."
Tasha was not charged with anything in this case. I don't know of a legal requirement to call 911.
Tasha testified at length yesterday.
I should clarify - we will take comments that are constructive and/or relevant.
