His defense team began by attacking inconsistencies in prosecution witnesses' stories.
Earlier in the day, State Police Investigator T. S. (suh-VARD) Svard told jurors that Thomas denied killing Tara Munsey .. even before investigators told him she was dead.
Judge Colin Gibb dropped a rape charge against Thomas, saying there was only enough evidence to try Thomas for ATTEMPTED rape.
Thomas would still be eligible for the death penalty if he is convicted on the capital murder charge.

If you're like most Americans going out to eating out is a favorite past time. And for many its hard to resist -not eating every bite. But just how much are you eating?

Proctor says while you can eat as much broccoli as you want -- be mindful of what it was cooked in. To determine how many servings you should have in a day. Proctor says follow the food guide pyramid.
That would include sparingly eating fats, oils,and sweets, 2 to 3 servings of dairy, 2 to 3 servings of meat, beans or nuts, 3 to 5 servings of vegetables, 2 to 4 servings of fruit and 6 to 11 serving of bread, pasta, or cereal.
