It will now continue to a 4th day on January 9 at 9:45 a.m.
The preliminary did not start at 8:30 a.m. as scheduled because Mr. John Paul Lopez, the DOJ criminalist expected to testify for the People could not fly in until this morning due to the weather.
He started his testimony at 11 a.m. The defense plans to call their expert, Suzanne Ayres.
The first two days of his preliminary took place on September 19. The only victim to survive Bradley Thueumler and law enforcement testified in September.
No media was present for those hearings and no media was present in court today.
I am waiting for it to conclude to do posts on the entire preliminary hearing.
