    Mother recalls husband, son’s killing

    The 15-person jury sat through more than 10 hours of testimony Wednesday during the murder trial against Caleb Corrothers, who is accused of shooting and killing Frank and Taylor Clark  in 2009. Among those who testified were Tonya Clark, the mother and wife of the Clark and her oldest son, Josh Clark. The jury listened to the 911 call Tonya made after the shooting and a 90-minute interview of Corrothers by Lafayette County investigators where he told them “they had the wrong man” repeatedly. (May 19, 2011, Page 1)

        Day two of Corrothers’ trial; mother testifies

        Tonya Clark took the stand Wednesday morning during the murder trial against Caleb Corrothers — the man accused of killing her husband, Frank Clark, and her son, Taylor Clark, on July 11, 2009.

        Tonya Clark testified that while she couldn’t pick Caleb Corrothers as the man who shot and killed her husband and son during a photo lineup that took place during the visitation service at their funeral, she said she recognized Corrothers sitting in the courtroom Wednesday morning. Glancing at him quickly, she pointed to him in the courtroom and said she was sure he was the one who pulled the trigger.

        Tonya Clark was wounded during the killings when she was shot twice in the neck.

        Tonya Clark’s oldest son, Josh, took the stand after his mother. Suffering three car wrecks since 2006, with one leaving him a coma for two weeks and a head injury, Josh Clark appeared to have trouble remembering some of his previous testimony he gave following the night his brother and father were killed. He identified Corrothers as the killer during the photo lineup at the funeral.

        Investigator Scott Mills was called to the stand around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday to described the crime scene. He is expected to return to the witness stand after a lunch break around 1 p.m.

        Corrothers could face the death penalty if found guilty of the two counts of capitol murder and one count of aggravated assault.
