FORT MYERS, Fla. - The State has begun breaking down some of the physical evidence in the Robert Dunn capital murder trial.
This follows two days of emotional testimony from witnesses inside Bobbie Noonan's Child Care and first responders who arrived on scene January 25, 2008.
Day 3 of the trial started with more testimony forensic pathologist Dr. Mark Schuman, who performed the autopsy on Dunn's estranged wife Christy Dunn.
He was cross-examined by the defense team and discussed the 2 gun shot wounds Christy Dunn sustained and how it was likely she died within minutes.
Schuman was followed by a crime scene technician with the Cape Coral Police Department who collected evidence for the case.
She testified about finding several bullets, both unfired and spent casings, outside the daycare center as well as inside the building near Christy Dunn's body.
The technician also talked about searching Robert Dunn's home after a warrant is issued. She said she found a case of bullets and a box for the gun allegedly linked to the murder, hidden inside a washing machine there.
Both sides also discussed an updated timeline for the trial. It is likely the prosecution could rest before the end of the day Friday.
If there is a penalty phase, it could happen by November 26.
Other witnesses expected on the stand Friday include the pawn shop owner who sold the alleged murder weapon to Dunn and a Cape Coral detective.
