But Oakley's attorneys say the bottle didn't break when their client was hit and that another man who has never been arrested picked it up and broke it over Baker. Parker was not asked for an opinion on that theory.
Parker displayed the clothing worn by the victims, including a cream-colored "Cleveland" sweater and black leather pants worn by Lollar.
"That was his favorite outfit," his cousin, Charita Hale, said during a break in the trial. Lollar can be seen wearing those clothes in a photograph on his business card from the Decatur Barber and Braid Shop. Hale, who has maintained a vigil behind the prosecution's table throughout the trial, said yesterday was one of the most difficult. Photos displayed in court included close-ups of the dead men's faces, and of their injuries.
"It's horrible to see all that blood on their clothes," Hale said. "He died miserably. Who would want to die on the street?"
The case lost much of its energy yesterday with the absence of Lewis. The crowd was a fraction of the size it had been when the NFL player was there.
Court TV has continued to televise the trial, but ESPN has ended its special coverage. "ESPN for all intents and purposes is out of the trial," said network spokesman Mac Nwulu.
Howard, who is heading the prosecution team, lamented the lack of interest now that the celebrity defendant is no longer present.
"Two dead guys, two people on trial, and as soon as Ray Lewis goes, that's it. That's the national mood. We have become so selfish. Two dead and it doesn't matter," Howard said.
