Davis v. State of Ohio, Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Case No. CV96-312322
plaintiff's filing, expert witness, wood chip, blood evidence, blood stain, motion in limine, opposition
The Estate of Sam Sheppard responds to the State’s motion to exclude the bloodstained wood chips and bloodstain from Marilyn Sheppard’s wardrobe door. The Estate supports that the physical evidence can be authenticated in accordance with Ohio case law concerning evidence of this nature. It also argues that any chain of custody gap is due to the failure of the State, which cannot use its own failure to bar evidence from being used against it.
