    The metro pcs employee is identifying Alemany in security video from the store - he says Alemany also paid off two cell phone bills.

    Denner cross examined Patel, the metro PCS salesman, and asked him if he really thought his customer's name was slim shady.

    The salesman says he didn't know what to think - they don't require ID.

    On the stand - Sean Stanton, a senior financial analyst. He was living in Southie on Gates Street in July of 2013.

    At midnight July 23rd he was getting ready for bed and heard screams from the street. Sounded like a female.

    He opened the window and looked out. (This was the time Alemany was attacking a 3rd woman, Kaleigh Ballantyne who was stabbed but lived)

    Stanton is looking at a photo of his street. He saw a male on top of a female. His left hand was on her collar bone. His right hand punching

    Stanton - heard heavy footsteps before the screaming. He ran to get his cellphone. Called 911. He saw male shouting in the street.

    Stanton addressed Alemany and said "hey (expletive) the police are coming." His 911 call is being played in court.

    Alemany has his head down during the 911 call. He describes Alemany as an African American 6 feet tall with a white tee shirt, jeans.

    Stanton tells police in 911 call the victim is still on Gates street. The dispatcher asks for descriptions, says police are on the way.

    Denner is cross examining Stanton.

    Denner gets Stanton to confirm he could not ID Alemany.

    Dr Anna McDonald identified 22 wounds identified as "sharp force injuries" some stab wounds, some cut wounds on July 24-25 2013.

    The left jugular vein was damaged internally. There was also damage to the esophagus. The Lord family BTW left and isn't hearing this.

    Dr McDonald is identifying autopsy photographs of Amy Lord's body.

    Autopsy photos are being passed to the jury. Judge Gaziano warns them to set emotions aside.

    The defense is expected to present its case- including expert testimony about Alemany's mental health - on Wesnesday.

    Denner has admitted Alemany attacked the first victim and the third - but he hasn't specifically stated to the jury he murdered Lord.

    Prosecutor John Pappas is now asking the Dr about wounds to the torso of Amy Lord.

    Christina Hager ‏@HagerWBZ 3h3 hours ago
    We're now going through knife wounds on Amy Lord's torso. It sounds like there were 29, but the cataloging system is a little unclear.

    Jonathan Hall ‏@JHall7news 3h3 hours ago
    Lord was stabbed and cut dozens of times according to Dr McDonald's testimony.

    Lord was stabbed in the liver, heart, and lungs according to the forensic pathologist now testifying. Alemany is keeping his head down.

    Alemany also stabbed Lord in the back according to the prosecution.

    Internal stab wounds: 8 to lungs 5 to liver and 1 to her heart.

    Lord also suffered many stab and cut wounds to her hands. Also wounds to her arms.

    Dr McDonald also found a stab wound to Amy Lord's leg.

    Amy Lord suffered stab and incise wounds to her buttocks and genital area. At least a dozen wounds to the vagina. Alemany's head still down

    This is very difficult testimony and the jury is seeing the photographic evidence. They are professional and keeping emotions in check.

    Dr McDonald- autopsy report released April 3 2014. Cause of death: sharp force injuries and strangulation.

    Denner is cross examining McDonald. She says she can't tell exactly when in the sequence of wounds she died.

    McDonald says several wounds to her belly may have been post mortem but she can't be sure.

    Dr McDonald steps down, the judge is dismissing the jury. There will be a hearing later this afternoon on the admissibility of statements.

    Forensic Psychiatrist Keith Ablow says Alemany has tendency to attack people and hurt himself @fox25news

    Ablow says a May 10th 2015 phone call Alemany made should be thrown out because he can't make voluntary statements w/his mental state

    Ablow says #Almenay is only capable of making involuntary statements.

    Ablow says when #Alemany knows details of the lives of his GF and daughter and asked GF abt it, it's involuntary

    Cathy ‏@courtchatter 1h1 hour ago

    The jury in the Amy Lord murder trial got to see video in court Tuesday of alleged killer Edwin Alemany interviewed by police.

    In the video, Alemany tells police he was at home at the time Lord was murdered. He admitted to drinking and arguing with his live-in girlfriend the night before Lord was murdered, but said he did not kill her.

    Also, within a 20 hour period before Alemany murdered Amy Lord, he attacked two other women....

  13. ~Lyric~

    Suffolk County Superior Court Judge Frank Gaziano allowed prosecutors to play a tape of Alemany's interview with the police at a Boston police station after his arrest on July 24, 2013, a day after the murder.

    Alemany, the article goes on to say, could:

    Talk about a cookout , his address, the fight he got into with his then girlfriend.
    Said he got cut by a "black dude" when he went to get smokes from Gas Station.
    DNA was found, his DNA, at the crime seen of the attack on Ballantyne ( who survived his attack).


    Gaziano also ruled that prosecutors will be allowed to play a phone call that that Alemany made to his girlfriend on Mother's Day in 2015.

    In the call, which is likely to be played Wednesday, Alemany told his girlfriend that he did not kill "a chick," according to Gaziano. He said he could not discuss details over the phone because the line was recorded, but he would tell her the truth during a jail visit. He predicted he would beat the worst charges and spend 10 to 15 years in jail.

    "The defendant was the one calling the shots," Gaziano said. "It was a manipulative phone call, not an involuntary one."

    #Alemany's 3rd victim who escaped during stabbing, Kayleigh Balantyne, left in tears during defense closings. She's now back in the room.

    [​IMG]Christina Hager ‏@HagerWBZ 4h4 hours ago
    Kayleigh Balantyne surprisingly unemotional when testifying about fighting #Alemany off, as he stabbed her 9 times. Today she cries openly.

    Here is my list for all the tweets for today...


    Very powerful stuff...
    His attorney wants him to be found not guilty by reason of insanity.
    However, the Prosecution says...pffffffffft. He can wine and dine ( my words) after attacking a couple of women and then Killing Amy Lord.
    Not just killing her but BRUTALLY murdering her.
