Davis v. State of Ohio, Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Case No. CV96-312322
state's filing, motion in limine, wood chip, Cynthia Cooper, blood evidence, blood stain, Ohio Evid.R. 901
The State of Ohio moves to exclude the bloodstained wood chip and the bloodstain on the murder room wardrobe door, arguing that these pieces of physical evidence cannot be authenticated and should not be admitted during trial. Specifically, it argues that Cynthia Cooper will not be appearing at trial, leaving the trier of fact deprived of information concerning her involvement in the uncovering of the evidence.
