On the second day of a five-day trial for a man charged with killing his brother-in-law in Whitewater, the jury heard from a state crime lab expert and a medical examiner.

A trial began Monday for Alan Johnson, 32, of Lima Center, who is charged with intentional homicide and burglary in connection with the Oct. 25, 2016, shooting death of his sister’s husband, Kenneth J. Myszkewicz, 43.

After opening statements Monday, Myskewicz’s wife and son, Kimberly and Tyler Myskewicz, testified as did Det. Derrick Schleis, officer Nicholas Borchardt and Johnson’s former attorney Scott McCarthy. On Tuesday, firearms examiner Mark Simonson testified followed by crime lab expert Samantha Delfosse and medical examiner Amy Shiel.

Delfosse testified regarding the DNA and blood that was found on clothing McCarthy turned over to police that was reportedly worn by Johnson during the shooting. Shiel testified regarding Myskewicz’s injuries and cause and manner of death.

Myskewicz suffered five gunshot wounds, two of which exited his body and three of which did not, Shiel reported. The cause of his death was gunshot wounds, and the manner of his death was homicide, according to her report that was entered into evidence Tuesday.

Testimony is expected to continue Wednesday and Thursday before the jury renders a verdict Friday.
