Lafayette Man's Defense Team Wrapped Up Their Case

Willis's defense presented their two final witnesses last week.


Richard Jones, Jr., chief fire investigator with Forensic Investigations Group, testified that he was hired by the defense team to evaluate the origin and cause of the two car fires.

Haney called Lafayette Fire Department investigator Alton Trahan to the stand as an expert witness to rebut Jones’s testimony. Trahan testified that the smoldering and reignited growth scenario could happen if the conditions were right, and that it’s possible the Disett Road fire began before the flare of light seen on video.
