The first witness took the stand Monday in the murder trial of Ezequiel Lopez-Quintero, the man accused of the murder last May of Kenosha County Sheriff's Deputy Frank Fabiano Junior .
Defense Attorney Frederick Cohn, who during his brief opening statement mispronounced several names including the victim's, told the jury they should find Lopez-Quintero not guilty because he could not from the intent to murder Deputy Fabiano. Cohn says his client was "so damn drunk" he doesn't remember what happened.
After hearing the taps of the dispatch transmissions the night of the Deputy's murder, UW Parkside Police Officer Jimmie Spino testified that after Fabiano ordered the driver of the van to get out three times, shots were fired and the deputy fell to the ground.
In his opening statement, District Attorney Bob Zafp said Lopez-Quintero suffered a graze wound to his back.
The trial, which is being held in Racine County, is expected to last all week.
