Prosecutors show photos in Ross trial
ELMIRA, N.Y. -- Graphic photographs were the focus at the trial for a man charged with killing someone in his sleep in Elmira.
Romondo Ross, 24, is accused of firing the shot that killed 51-year-old Maurice Davis last August at the Hathorn Court apartments. Davis was asleep in an upstairs room when a bullet came through the wall and killed him.
On Wednesday, prosecutors presented photos taken at the crime scene. They pointed to bullet holes in the children’s bedroom and the hole made by the fatal bullet that penetrated the apartment wall and a wooden headboard before striking Davis in the head.

Police investigators explain how they used wooden poles to determine the trajectory of the bullets. The defense claims none of this evidence proves the identity of the killer.
"I'm going to talk about the clash of testimony between the so-called eye witnesses. And that raises, in my opinion, sufficient reasonable doubt as to identification, which is the crux of the case," said Defense Attorney Paul Corradini
Ross is one of two men charged. Demetrius Molina is also accused of second degree murder.
The trial is expected to wrap up by the end of the week.
