Day Four of the Pedro Bravo murder trial was dominated by more witnesses called by the prosecution.
Among those who testified yesterday were employees of stores where Bravo made purchases that prosecutors say are questionable.
One of those purchases is a shovel that was found under a walkway in Bravo’s apartment complex, Spyglass Apartments.
Witness testimonies also linked items found in Bravo’s car to those used in Aguilar’s murder.
The state says they still have plenty of witnesses to question, so the defense will have to wait a little longer to present its case.
But the defense did reiterate that Bravo will not take the stand.
The trial will resume this morning at 9 am.
