The Walter McMillian case is known for murder, the vastly opposing testimonies, and the controversy around the trial.  According to “Case study #4: Walter McMillian”, “A subsequent autopsy revealed three slugs in Ronda’s body, including one fired from close range.  The coroner concluded that she had lived for about five minutes after being shot”(“Case Study #4: Walter McMillian”).  A brick was found in the bathroom with a hair on it.  When the brick was thrown, it left an impression in the wall(“McMillian v. State”).  The autopsy revealed numerous bruises and scratches by the right side of the victim’s neck and forehead. There was a large amount of internal bleeding, but little external bleeding(“McMillian v. State).  Throughout the trial there were several instances of opposing testimonies.  For example, according to an article by Justia, “Jimmy D. Hunter testified that he had worked on the transmission of the appellant’s truck on the date of the murder and that the appellant was home all day;”(“McMillian v. State).  Ralph Myers claims that he and McMillian went to the cleaners.  Myers heard a popping noise and went inside to find McMillian by the body with money in his hands(“Case Study #4: Walter McMillian).  In an article by Peter Applebome, he claims, “Mr. McMillian’s lawyer called a dozen witnesses, who all testified he was at home the day of the murder taking part in a fish fry(Peter Applebome, “Alabama Releases Man Held On Death Row for Six Years”).   There were many aspects that made this trial very interesting.  According to Peter Applebome, “Mr. McMillian, who is 46 years old, was locked up on Death Row even before he was tried”(Peter Applebome, “Alabama Releases Man Held On Death Row for Six Years”).  Another interesting aspect of the trial is the appellant moved his trial to a different venue because he felt that he was not receiving a fair trial(“McMillian v. State”). “McMillian v. State” reports that “Five jurors recommended the death penalty, and seven recommended a sentence of life imprisonment without parole”(“McMillian v. State”)  In conclusion, the Walter McMillian murder case dealt with opposing testimonial viewpoints and was surrounded with controversy.
