Associate Defense Counsel, Fred W. Garmone, cross-examines Dr. Lester Hoversten for only 10 minutes before excusing him from the witness stand. Hoversten also claims that he was asleep in Kent, Ohio during the night of the murder. Used as an alibi, he related an incident at the house in Kent, where a Dalmation dog came upstairs to his room, crawled under his bed, and made peculiar noises that night, so he ended up locking the dog downstairs.
