CROSS EXAMINATION BY MR. HOLOHAN CONTINUES
Q. And there was blood all over the kitchen where Mr. Worrell was laying, so why did you choose to flip the cushion over?
A. Just in the moment — not thinking straight.
Q. You were trying to hide it weren’t you?
A. No. I was not trying to hide it.
Q. So, why did you flip it over?
A. I have no reason to tell you why I flipped it over.
Q. So in the midst of — of trying to save Mr. Worrell’s life, calling 9 – 1 – 1, and giving Mr. Bomber the keys, you had the presence of mind to walk over and for no reason flip the couch cushion over to hide the big blood stain?
A. I wasn’t trying to hide a big blood stain.
Q. You just flipped it over for no reason?
A. I flipped it over because there was so much blood on it and I just — I can’t really give you a reason why. I just did. I was not thinking straight.
Q. But, you were thinking straight enough later to call with the suicide lie? Right?
A. Yes, sir.
Q. And, do you remember talking to a lady, Cheryl Argabright, about this — what happened in the apartment on that evening?
A. Yes, I do. And —
Q. Who’s Ms. Argabright?
A. What? Can you repeat the name?
Q. Who is Ms. Argabright? Is she the manager at Cinnamon Ridge? Does that refresh your memory?
A. I heard — I heard you say, Joyce.
Q. Cheryl Argabright?
A. I didn’t know Cheryl’s last name was that.
Q.. Okay. Did you talk to the woman you know as Cheryl who was the manager of Cinnamon Ridge about what happened in the apartment?
A. At what time?
Q. Okay. And didn’t you tell her that — that Mr. Worrell said to Mr. Bomber when they were talking — when Mr. Bomber was complaining about his custody problems that he didn’t know what stress is and that Mr. Bomber became angry and went to the kitchen and got a knife and came back and stabbed Mr. Worrell?
Q. You didn’t tell her that?
A. No, I did not.
Q. Okay. Didn’t you — Didn’t you say that Mr. Bomber advanced toward Mr. Worrell with a knife?
A. Can you repeat the question?
Q. Sure. Let me find which statement that you had it in. Didn’t you say that Mr. Bomber, after he had gone into the kitchen and got the knife, that he was coming toward Mr. Worrell? Did you tell Detective Walters that on June 6th?
A. When he seen that Mr. Worrell was coming towards him.
Q. He came toward Mr. Worrell with a knife?
A. One step, because that’s how far away Mr. Worrell was away from him, one (1) to two (2) steps.
Q. And this happened at the entrance to the kitchen?
Q. Where were you standing?
A. I was back near the entrance to the door.
Q. What door?
A. The only door that opens into the apartment.
Q. So, you were by the front door?
Q. And you could see what was happening all the way in the back?
A. I’m not —
Q. You said the door —
A. I’m not sure about understanding your question.
Q. You said, the door that opens to the apartment. Are you taking about the front door?
Q. Okay. So, you are saying that you could see — When Mr. Inge was asking you questions, you could see what Mr. Bomber was doing in the kitchen after he had been choked by Mr. Worrell? So, you were standing by the front door, and you could see what he was doing in the kitchen?
A. No. I was not standing in front of the door when Mr. Bomber was taken down into the headlock or after he had gotten up. I was still in the same — where I was because when they seperated, I — When they separated, I went back down into the floor and I was getting up and going around the — the coffee table towards the left side instead of the right side. I was coming from in behind Mr. Worrell. I was trying to get to David.
Q. So you were behind Mr. Worrell?
Q. But, I still don’t understand where you were when you say you saw Mr. Bomber doing things in the kitchen after he — You said his color came back and he was putting his hand by his throat. How could you see that if he was in the kitchen?
A. Because the apartment is not what you would actually picture an apartment to be to be actually separated to where you can actually see into everywhere and things. You can see corners and angles.
Q. You can see corners and angles?
A. You can see corners of angles inside openings of doors from opposite ends apart. And I was at the opposite end where I could still see.
Q. Now, when Mr. Worrell had Mr Bomber, according to you in this headlock and Mr. Bomber was turning blue, I believe you said that Mr. Bomber’s legs were hanging off the couch? Correct?
Q. Okay. And you ran over there and were trying to separate them? Correct?
A. I didn’t run over there, I was already in the floor where David had gotten taken down. I was already sitting in the floor in front of David.
Q. You were sitting on the floor in front of David, who was on the couch?
Q. Isn’t there a coffee table right in front of the couch?
A. Yes. But it —
Q. Was Mr. Bomber struggling to get free of Mr. Worrell?
Q. Was he struggling a little bit or a lot?
A. Yeah, he was struggling with his upper body strength.
MR. HOLOHAN: No other questions, Your Honor.
