The trial of State v. Marshall continues Friday in Wrangell.
Thursday, Frank Mooney, a witness for the prosecution, took the stand.
Mooney was Marshall’s cellmate at the Ketchikan Correctional Center in 2012.
He alleges that Marshall spoke to him about the alleged assault and attempted to get him to kill the victim.
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.
The trial is scheduled to continue at 8:30 Friday morning with the rest of the cross-examination.
