Which witness said she saw them both standing up?

Guy didn't say. Often he would just say 'a witness'.

ETA: My guess would be W-18. No one else but W-6 saw the fight for any length of time.

I had a call right about then--did he say anything substantive about the gym or just mention it?
He made a point of emphasizing it was a fight Gym... little else.

When Guy was talking about the autopsy, he dwelled for a while on the gunshot wound, not to make an evidentiary point, but for the emotion. He emphasized TM shot in heart.

Hi there AIF.  Welcome back to TLForums.   8)  Are you planning to attend any trial sessions?

He said it was a gym that teaches kick boxing and MMA, self defense.  I wonder if the gym gets a downturn in business because this client couldn't defend himself.  Or maybe there is a new fighting style ... "first lie down" kickboxing.

But he didn't mention that he had records or witnesses that GZ took fight classes.

Guy talking about irrelevant details of autopsy, to emphasize that TM was dead.

TM small.

I typed 'small', but I had forgotten the exact word. Maybe it was 'thin'. Something to portray TM as vulnerable in life and pitiful in death.

I would like to; but there are circumstances which make it difficult to impossible.
I have been lurking, just not much to add lately... thanks for the salutation.

Rene Stutzman tweets she doesn't recall any mention of race. I don't either.

Rene Stutzman tweets description of first visuals, giant photos of GZ's bloody face, witness diagram showing TM on top [probably W-6's], overhead photo of RATL.

ETA: Not surprising that the defense wants the jury to understand the layout of the neighborhood.
