CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Marvin Harris is in the fight of his life and the fight for his life if he’s convicted of the shooting death of 12-year-old Abdel Bashiti on Nov. 24, 2017.

His second day in court centered on bullet evidence and who controlled the chain of custody. Prosecutors say police did things by the book, but Harris’s attorneys are trying to sow “beyond a reasonable doubt” by aggressively questioning the officers involved in the collection of evidence at the scene.

The trial continues on Thursday.
