On January 23, 2023 I sketched opening statements in the trial of Cody Fohrenkam, accused of murdering high school student Deshaun Hill, Jr.

The prosecuting attorney makes opening statements to the jury outlining why he believes Fohrenkam is guilty.

Defense attorney Lisa Skrzeczkoski-Bzdusek makes opening statements as to why she believes her client is innocent.

Testimony opened with Tuesday Sheppard, mother of the victim, testifying about the death of her son.

Witness Ashley McNamara called 911 after the murder. She was one of the first witnesses to testify, and held a Kleenex to wipe away tears.

I was only in court for opening statements on Day 1 of the trial. However, on January 26 the jury found Fohrenkam guilty.
