Wed, 21 May 2014 15:42:06 GMT — The Calvin Hutson murder trial continued Wednesday as the state called witnesses to the stand. Hutson, a Jefferson City resident, is charged with second-degree murder, armed criminal action, first-degree robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm in the death of Andre Hudson. Before their first break, the state called a Jefferson City police officer to testify. The officer said the night of the shooting he spoke with Calvin Hutson when he was at the hospital being treated for gunshot wounds. Hutson told the officer that he and Justin Beasley were meeting a man to buy CDs behind the Zestos restaurant. Hutson said Beasley and the man they met up with we're talking in Beasley's car and shots rang out. Hutson then said his arm went numb and realized he'd been shot. He said he got out of the car and ran. The second person called to testify was Jefferson City Police Department's evidence technician who had processed the crime scene and the vehicles involved. She testified that there was a blood trail from the parking lot where the shooting happened to where Calvin Hutson was later found. Along the blood trail she found two bags of marijuana and a gun placed underneath carpeting near a house. She also found a cell phone case and cell phone. The technician processed Beasley's Dodge Stratus, which is where Andre Hudson was found dead. The car had bullet holes in the back passenger car door and window. There was also multiple shell casings found inside the car including several found in a child's car seat.
