Testimony continues

With two days in the books, testimony in the case against Andy Brown continues this week.

A number of key witnesses testified Thursday and Friday about the day Sturgis-area CPA David Locey was found dead in his office north of the city, with a single gunshot wound to his head in October 2013.

Testimony began Thursday, when Tammy Brunner, an employee with Locey’s firm, described in detail finding her boss within an hour after he was shot. When asked by prosecuting attorney John McDonough, Brunner testified she instantly suspected Brown was behind the incident.

Other witnesses to take the stand last week included first-responder Rich Johnson from the Sturgis Police Department; Locey’s wife, Cherie; and St. Joseph County 911 dispatcher Ramona Metzger.

McDonough said Brown is the leading suspect in the murder. Testimony continues this week in Centreville before Judge Paul Stutesman.
