((HT: KUSA-TV Denver))
Denver Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall was called to the witness stand in the Willie Clark murder trial yesterday.
Clark is charged with pulling the trigger in the death of Broncos defensive back Darrent Williams on New Year's Day 2007.
Marshall testified in court that he saw a confrontation in the VIP area of the Shelter nightclub between a group of Williams' friends and two other men. He said he did not see any champagne being sprayed ((as one version of the facts is being reported involving Marshall's cousin who was there as well that evening)). He and teammate Elvis Dumervil tried to make peace with the men. Marshall said he offered to buy the men drinks too.
Attorneys say Marshall never saw Clark or anyone in that group get into a white SUV. Police say the shots that killed Williams were fired from that kind of vehicle.
The defense tried to go after Brandon Marshall's testimony. Marshall described the suspect wearing sunglasses and a hoodie that may have been dark with some purple coloring. Defense attorneys showed a photo of a camouflage jacket connected to the case.
There are close to 50 other names on the witness list- including both athletes and those involved in the shooting of Darrent Williams.
