Ed Graf: Arson "science" case: Day 3 of the retrial: Prosecutors turn to firefighters for their accounts; Defence lawyers stress that everyone reacts differently to tragedy. KCEN.

STORY: "Prosecutors turn to firefighter's accounts on Day 3 of Graf retrial," by reporter Chris Davis, published by KCEN  TV  on October 9, 2014.

GIST: "Jim Sutter told the court he pulled Graf inside his house and told him they had found the first body.  "There was no response" to that revelation, Sutter said. He didn't shed a tear or break down, he said, responding to questions from a state's attorney. But after reviewing his testimony from the first trial in 1988, Sutter said Graf did react, and said "Oh, my God." One of the major points Graf's defense team has been driving at is that everyone reacts differently to tragedy, and it's impossible to know exactly what Graf was feeling, or how he acted when he was alone..........In their opening statement, defense attorneys said there was no evidence the boys had been knocked out and dragged to the shed. Thursday they asked the firefighters about the role carbon monoxide could have played in incapacitating the two.
