A Findlay man accused of murder testified in his own defense Tuesday. The Courier reports Montre Robinson served as his only defense witness during yesterday’s proceedings. He faces a murder charge in the death of Joe Gutierrez last November. Investigators say Robinson was driving the car Gutierrez was shot from.
Robinson testified he witnessed an attack on Ralph Harris III at the Glenwood Village Apartments on Sterling Drive a little before midnight on November 7. He added that he didn’t get a good look at the attacker, and that Harris said the man was Hispanic.
Robinson said they went to go pick up his cousin from work early on November 8. As they did, Harris was confident he saw his attacker in another car. He told Robinson to follow him. When Gutierrez got out of his car, Harris shot him. Robinson said he didn’t know Harris had a gun. He also testified he was afraid of Harris following that, so he went along with the getaway plan.
Closing arguments are set for today.
