Jury hearing trial of a killing near a drug house
Jurors have begun hearing evidence in the trial of a man accused of killing another man outside a Magnus Avenue crack house.
Cory Owen Bushie, 30, has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the July 2007 shooting death of 20-year-old Aaron James Nabess.
Prosecutors argue Bushie and Nabess arrived at the crack house in the company of two women and spent a short time inside before moving to the back lane. A witness is expected to testify she saw Bushie pull a gun from his waistband before Nabess was shot.
Police arrived a short time later and arrested Bushie at the scene.
