Testimony continues in Mallory murder trial

TERRE HAUTE — Testimony from the former Vigo County coroner indicated a Terre Haute man who died in an Aug., 24, 2012, shooting was shot once while he was already lying on his back in a parking lot.

During the second day of the trial in Vigo Superior Court 6 for 22-year-old William Mallory, forensic pathologist Dr. Roland Kohr stated that one of the bullets that entered the chest of Dustin Kelly exited his back while Kelly was lying on a hard surface, such as an asphalt parking lot. Kelly likely died within minutes of being shot, said Kohr, who conducted the autopsy of Kelly following the shooting in the parking lot south of the Ballyhoo Tavern at Ninth and Chestnut streets.

Deputy Prosecutor Chris Wrede called five witnesses to the stand this morning, including four Terre Haute Police Department officers who responded to the scene of the shooting.

Mallory is charged with felony murder, two counts of class-A felony attempted murder, two counts of class-B felony aggravated battery, and carrying a handgun without a license, a class-A misdemeanor.

Kelly, 24, died after being shot twice. Also shot were Dante Pettus and Terrance Trotter, both 21 at the time. Pettus was shot twice in the torso and Trotter was shot in the hip. Mallory allegedly shot all three men with a 9-millimeter handgun.

Testimony will continue this afternoon for the trial that is expected to wrap up Friday.
