Coroner testifies in Clark murder trial


Jurors in the Richard Clark murder trial may hear testimony from defense witnesses first thing Friday and then hear closing arguments before they are asked to decide whether Clark killed Dwayne Hickman last March.

This afternoon was taken up with testimony from Dr. Humphrey Germaniuk, Trumbull County coroner, who described the 11 stab wounds and four lacerations on Hickman’s body.

Dr. Germaniuk described two of the knife wounds as having been fatal wounds, having struck Hickman in the neck.

If Clark, 39, is convicted of aggravated murder in the case, he could get life in prison without parole.
