Uneasy mood after the fight that killed Marcellus Andrews


Testimony continued Friday in the Paris Anding murder trial.

Court records show that Anding admitted to hitting Marcellus Andrews with a baseball bat. Andrews later died.

Karmelle McGee was the first witness to take the stand Friday. She was in the vehicle that picked up Paris Anding the night of the fight.

She remembered Anding bringing a bat with him, but did not see him hit Andrews.

McGee said after the fight happened she left with about five other people and went to someone else's home that night. That's where she met up with Anding, he asked her to take him home.

"He just said he shouldn't have left his baby at home and he should have stayed in the house," said McGee.

McGee said the day after the fight there was a meeting at a home with most of the people involved in the fight.

That's when people started talking, even Anding.

"The only thing I really remember him saying was he wasn't trying to go to jail and that he said Marcellus was going to hit Toni and that he hit him," said McGee.

The defense is saying Anding acted in defense of others.
