OTHER TESTIMONY What witnesses said

Several other witnesses appeared in court Wednesday in the homicide trial of Perry S. Ricciardi.
Joshua Rhodes of Struthers, a former Taco Bell employee, said he sold nacho chips to David Garvey at 5:53 p.m. Oct. 8, 2000. Police have testified that Shannon was given nacho chips by the men before the murder. Ricciardi told police the chips were in exchange for promised oral sex, which the victim refused to do.Vicki Lynn Steinbeiser of Boardman testified that Ricciardi, Garvey and Monday were not at her home the day of the murder. Steinbeiser is the aunt of Monday's girlfriend, Danielle Hamill, with whom she lived in Struthers in October 2000. Steinbeiser said she knows the men were not at her home that day because the father of Hamill's child, who was incarcerated at the time, was released for the day to spend time with the child. Steinbeiser said Monday and the other man did not get along, and Monday would not have been welcome. The child's father was at the home from 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Oct. 8, she said. Ricciardi, Monday and Garvey had told police they spent part of the day of the homicide at Hamill's home.Mike Kassem of Poland, Ohio, testified that William Monday bought 25 cents' worth of gasoline from his convenience store/gas station, Morgan Oil on Lowellville Road, Struthers, at 8:41 a.m. Oct. 10, 2000. Police have said that Shannon's body was doused with gasoline before it was burned.
