For a detailed summary of the prosecution's arguments, please see the "Remarks" screen for h96.1.1436. Second day of the trial of Burton W. Abbott, accused of the kidnapping and murder of 14 year-old Stephanie Bryan. From Nov. 7 until Nov. 15, the trial was occupied with selection of the jury. Here, in the front of the courtroom partially filled with spectators (members of the media? Abbott and Bryan family members?), defense counsels Harold B. Hove, John F. Hanson, Jr., and Stanley D. Whitney confer with Burton Abbott. They have several white notebooks arrayed on the table in front of them.
