Testimony begins in murder trial

  Justin Smyth said nobody in the car had a gun the night they were fleeing from a man who was shooting at them.

  Smyth said he wished they had a gun.

  “Why?” asked District Attorney David Hollister.

  “To defend ourselves,” Smyth answered.

  Smyth was the first witness to testify in the murder trial of Gregory Chad Wallin-Reed on Tuesday, Sept. 3, in Plumas County Superior Court in Quincy.

  Smyth was one of six Susanville men in a car that was being chased by Wallin-Reed on July 2, 2011. Wallin-Reed was shooting at them with a handgun and an AR-15 assault weapon after he caught the young men stealing solar lights from his property along the Janesville grade near Antelope Lake.

  The trial for Wallin-Reed, 38, of Reno, is expected to last up to a month.
