Defense calls witnesses in Kudlach trial


Friday marked the fifth day of testimony in a Centre County murder trial.  Alois Kudlach is charged with first and third degree murder in the shooting death of his wife Nuria back in August 2015.

On Thursday, eight witnesses took the stand providing more than eleven hours of testimony. Friday morning, the prosecution wrapped up its case and Kudlach’s defense team began calling people to the stand.

They included high-profile forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht.

Wecht is best known for his role in criticizing the findings in the John F. Kennedy assassination.  Dr. Wecht was obtained by Kudlach’s attorney to examine the autopsy photos of Nuria Kudlach.

Friday afternoon Kudlach was called to the witness stand to testify.

The defense is expected to present its case throughout the day.  Stay with WTAJ News for the latest developments.
