The trial of State v. Marshall continues Friday in Wrangell.

Thursday, Frank Mooney, a witness for the prosecution, took the stand.

Defendant Steven Marshall also took the stand in the late afternoon. He was questioned by the defense.

Marshall maintains his innocence, saying the victim assaulted him after drinking too much.

The session adjourned for the day at 4:30pm with the prosecution cross-examining the defendant.
