Lawyer: Lisbon hunter thought he hit doe
Fish and Game officer Gregory Jellison testified Monday that Holmes thought the deer was down, and that he “had made a good shot.” But as Holmes moved in to view the kill, he made a horrific discovery — he had hit Kenneth L. Brunelle, 31, of Marlborough, Mass., a 31-year-old father of two young boys. Brunelle died from a shot to the neck from the 30-06 Winchester rifle Holmes was carrying.
Each of the Class B felonies carries a potential sentence of 3 1/2 to seven years in state prison.
As the 13 jury members — five men and eight women, including an alternate — listened, defense attorney Leonard Harden of Lancaster asked Jellison, “Wade was consistent that he saw a deer.”
Harden criticized authorities’ handling of the scene that day in the woods, specifically the large number of people he said were allowed to “walk around” there.
“Would it surprise you if there were more than 20 people up there?” Harden asked.
Authorities said Brunelle was not hunting that day, but was wearing camouflage in a hunting party that included his father and brother, and was filming them as they hunted.
“He said this was something he would have to live with the rest of his life,” Hamilton testified.
In what’s scheduled to be a five-day trial before Judge Peter H. Bornstein, jurors traveled to view the shooting scene last week. They’re expected to get the case late this week.
