Frith spent much of yesterday on the witness stand.

Around noon, crews from three volunteer fire companies were called to a house off Roachtown Road in southeastern Bedford County.
A neighbor had reported smoke coming from the roof of the single- story brick building.
Firefighters were attempting to ventilate the house when the blaze erupted out a front window.
Authorities say strong winds and a driving rain made it difficult for crews to get a handle on the fire.
They spent more than three hours, trying to extinguish flames that had reached into the roof.
No one was home when the fire broke out.
