The murder trial of an Albany man continued Thursday with defense lawyers presenting evidence.
55-year-old John Dodson Jr., is on trial for the August 2007 beating death of 82-year-old Willie Wright. Wright was found near his South Jackson Avenue home. He died a month and a half later at a local hospital. The prosecution rested its case on Wednesday. Much of their case depends on the testimony of witness Shaneka Wheeler who said she saw Dodson beat Wright with a stick.
