Yuma, AZ- We're in the 11th week of the Preston Strong trial and today several witnesses took the stand. Tanya Pepper was the first to give testimony. She said she was Dr. Satinder Gill's neighbor.
She testified that on the morning of November 2nd 2007 she was leaving her home to run an errand and she noticed a white BMW speeding through the neighborhood.
She said she saw the vehicle park in Dr.Gill's drive way. She originally told police in 2007 that the driver may have been a man or woman.
Today she said the driver was a male with dark skin.
Two from the Yuma Police Department and one from the Yuma County Sheriff's Office also gave testimony.
They were all asked by the defense about their participation in the investigation of Doctor Gill's death and their findings.
Video of the crime scene was played. Defense attorney Kristi Riggins had Robert Vigil from the Yuma County Medical Examiners Office explain what was happening step by step when they pulled Dr. Gill's body out of the master bathroom tub.
Police say Dr. Gill was suffocated and had blunt force trauma to his head when they found him.
