David Bisard Trial Enters Third Week

Last updated on Tuesday, October 29, 2013

(FORT WAYNE) - The trial against suspended Indiana Metro Police Officer David Bisard entered its third week on Monday, picking up with the prosecution’s focus on blood evidence.

Bisard, who's accused of DUI, crashed into a group of motorcyclists in August 2010. Eric Wells died in the crash, and two others, Mary Wells and Kurt Weekly, were seriously injured.

RTV6 reporter Jack Rinehart reported the state's case Monday focused on getting the second vial of Bisard's blood admitted into evidence. The vial's viability has been contested, because it was moved to an unrefrigerated facility for storage.

The state will call a geneticist to the stand Monday to testify that, based on DNA, the blood samples contain Bisard's blood.
