ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Nearly two weeks into the trial of soldier Kip Lynch, accused of murdering his wife and infant daughter, the prosecution wrapped up its case with two witnesses.
Raquell Lynch's mother took to the stand for a second time to clarify a few points, and while the defense questioned whether all the evidence collected was tested, the detective on the case testified it's about what could be reasonably tested.
The defense began its case with its first witness: Kip Lynch's doctor when he was admitted into the hospital from what the prosecution says was a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Defense Attorney Dan Lowery argued that Lynch's injury affects his verbal and memory skills. He called to the stand another doctor, a neuropsychologist, to testify on Lynch's short-term memory difficulties.
