D.J. says his father pulled into the Westview Terrace apartments, where they thought Teresa lived, after they spotted her car.
But the occupants of the car were Teresa's sister and brother-in-law, Tina and Steve Quesenberry.
D.J. testified the three were sitting in their cars arguing about why Dennis couldn't see his child when Dennis thrust a gun across D.J.'s face and shot the couple. su The defense tried to portray Dennis as a father who was so devastated at being kept from his child that he was driven to violence in the heat of passion. His lawyer says that would make him guilty of nothing more than manslaughter.
That will be up to a jury decide if the grand jury indicts Stoneman when it meets March 11th. Tracy Altizer, News 7.))
