The trial of lawyer Tex McIver, who is fighting charges that he intentionally shot his wife to death, crossed a milestone in the fourth week of testimony, as the prosecution rested its case, and the defense started its presentation.
Our reporter Robin McDonald has covered every day of the trial. This week she detailed testimony from two public relations agents who worked for McIver in the aftermath of the shooting, Bill Crane and Jeff Dickerson; staffers at Emory University Hospital, where Diane McIver died; Judge Robert McBurney’s dismissal of two charges that McIver improperly influenced witnesses; and a masseuse who said she stayed with McIver after his wife’s death to help him get through his grief.
Here are moments captured by photographers from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which the judge designated to provide photos for the news media.
