Dennis and his brother, Otis, are charged with murdering Johnson. Eyewitnesses had seen the two defendants fighting with the victim outside a bar after midnight. Shortly afterwards, the victim was found shot in the head.

The case against both defendants is now on trial. In the defense case-in-chief, an eyewitness testifies. During direct examination the witness said that he had seen Otis, one or two minutes after the shooting, leaving the scene and tucking a gun under his shirt.
