Lyons’s Wife Takes the Stand


Corey Lyons, accused of murdering his brother Daniel and his brother’s partner, Barbara Scharton, in the home he built for them, saw his wife, Millie, take the stand. Millie received immunity for her testimony, which began briefly on 12/6. Judge Brian Hill is hoping to wrap the case up by the holidays, but told the jury that if they needed more time to deliberate, then it would be provided. Prosecutor Gordon Auchincloss is expected to finish his portion of the case early next week.
