Opening Arguments Held In "Eye Blink" Trial

May 2, 2013

Hamilton County prosecutors say a dying, paralyzed Cincinnati man who couldn't speak intentionally blinked his eyes to identify a photo of his attacker for authorities.

Opening arguments were made yesterday in the trial of 35-year-old Ricardo Woods, who is charged with killing 35-year-old David Chandler in October 2010. Defense attorneys say Chandler's blinks were inconsistent and unreliable because of his condition. Prosecutors say Woods shot Chandler because Chandler owed him money for drugs.
