Evidence examined in Paris Anding Trial


Monday, the prosecution looked more into the evidence collected after that August fight.

In police interviews, Paris Anding admitted to hitting Marcellus Andrews in the head with a baseball bat. Police say Anding then discarded the bat after the fight. It was found about a week and a half later at a home in the 200 block of Sumner Street.

The resident of the home called the police because she noticed something not usually in her yard.

The police came over and that is when they found the red Louisville slugger bat. It was quickly taken into custody and tested for DNA.

"My results indicate that screen testing did not indicate presence of blood on the base of the bat handle, the bat end cap, and four areas on the bat barrel," said Dr. Sabrina Seehafer, Criminalist at the State of Iowa Division of criminal investigation on the stand Monday.

Dr. Seehafer said that since the baseball bat was out in the elements it could have lost some of the DNA.
