BRIDGEPORT - Jurors heard eyewitness testimony today in the trial of a man accused of murdering Fairfield jewelers Kim and Tim Donnelly in 2005.
Today's testimony at State Superior Court in Bridgeport began with neighboring business owner Dale Nel, who says he saw Christopher DiMeo's SUV parked outside of the Donnellys' jewelry store before the murders.
Nel recalled that the person he saw that night had on a grey or green jacket. Prosecutors then introduced what's believed to be the same jacket and a .40 caliber pistol, which were both found in DiMeo's black Honda Passport.
Jurors also heard from the Nassau County detective who took DiMeo's confession in the murder of a clerk at a Long Island jewelry store. The detective says DiMeo also admitted to the Fairfield murders.
Prosecutors are expected to start taking the jury through the Fairfield crime scene when court resumes tomorrow.
