DECATUR, Ga. (WXIA) -- The beginning of suspended DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis's trial was briefly delayed Tuesday morning.
A witness, Nina Hall, filed a motion to quash her testimony, which led to the delay.
The defense claimed the district attorney's office sent Hall a list of its questions and proposed answers for them, and said it believes witnesses are being inappropriately coached by the prosecution.
The judge in the trial heard arguments on whether the district attorney's office acted out of turn, then ruled the prosecution did nothing wrong in preparing the witness.
