TUESDAY, JULY 10: A Supreme Court jury heard there was no blood on a knife seized from the house of a defendant on trial for wounding.
In court today, Crown counsel Garrett Byrne read out a statement from Samantha Bloomfield, who received the blood samples for the trial.
Brothers Ezra Ararat, 25, and Ezra Williams, 27, and Zharrin Simmons allegedly robbed Victoria DeCoute and Kenneth Williams at knifepoint on August 21.
The court heard the pair were sitting in their car on Hermitage Road waiting to buy marijuana.
The defendants deny the charges.
In Ms Bloomfield’s statement, she said she received swabs to be tested for the presence of blood from forensic officer Michelle Perinchief.
The swabs were taken inside a home in Boundary Crescent, Devonshire, where Mr Ararat lives.
The swabs taken from the doorstep, doorknob and surge protector were positive for blood.
Swabs taken from a knife and machete on the property were not positive for blood.
The trial continues this afternoon.
