Prosecution Rests in Trial of Accused Serial Killer

10/24/2013

The prosecution has rested in the capital murder trial of accused serial killer William Clyde Gibson.

The prosecution called Kentucky Assistant Medical Examiner Dr. Amy Beckham who said 75-year-old Christine Whitis did not die quickly and likely suffered for a period of time.  Dr. Beckham's claims clash with those of Gibson who claimed she died quickly.

"Dr. Beckham was a key witness in giving the facts as to the condition of Ms. Whitis' body and what that meant," said Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson.

The testimony featured graphic images of the autopsy which Henderson says were essential to his case.  He says he tried to keep the graphic images to a minimum.

Gibson is accused of murdering three women but is expected to face trial in each murder separately.
