The murder trial of actor Robert Blake is focusing on science.
Jurors yesterday were shown the black outfits Blake and his wife wore out to dinner the night she was killed. Experts said some holes in Bonny Lee Bakley's outfit could have been made by bullets. And an expert testified about finding gunshot residue on Blake's boot. But scientific experts also agreed that gunshot residue often is widely dispersed and can be transferred easily from one item to another.
And an expert testified that even if Blake had gunshot residue on his hands, it could have come from other sources, such as the gun he carried but which was not used in the crime.
Blake is charged with killing his wife. The trial resumes today in Los Angeles.
