Attorney Wants DUI Testimony Omitted


The attorney for Paul Morrisroe of Marshburg argued in McKean County Court Thursday that testimony concerning alcohol consumption by his client should not be allowed at his trial later this month.  Paul Miller told President Judge John Pavlock that their expert had concluded that there was no alcohol in Morrisroe’s system at the time of the crash.  District attorney Stephanie Vettenberg-Shaffer disagreed with Miller’s assumptions saying that prosecution witnesses, including police and bartender testimony, suggested that Morrisore was intoxicated.  A court ordered blood draw later the next day showed that there was no alcohol in his system, but it did indicate the presence of marijuana.  Morrisroe is charged with homicide by vehicle while under the influence of alcohol in the fatal hit and run accident which claimed the life of Dakota Heinaman of Cyclone last June.
