On Monday, the trial of Michele Anderson began after 8 years of delay. Anderson is charged with six counts of aggravated first-degree murder for the cold-blooded murder of her brother, sister-in-law, young niece and nephew, and parents. Bevel Gardner's Senior Partner, Ross Gardner, worked to reconstruct and testify to the King County jury, working the jury through the horrific scene of the murder using actual furniture collected from the crime scene. Gardner recreated the living room murder to give jurors a better understanding of how everything unfolded during the brutal murder. During the recreation, Senior Deputy Prosecutor Scott O’Toole asked Gardner a question about a gunshot wound to Olivia Anderson's head and Gardner stopped to compose himself before apologizing to the jury for his brief flash of emotion saying, "My job is to put my humanity away. It sometimes grabs you by the neck, so my apologies.” Watch video of the trial from local news.
