On Friday’s trial of Willie Clark, who was suspected to murder former Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams, Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall was present to testify. He recognized Clark to be one of the men he saw in a confrontation before the shooting but could not confirm he was the one who shot his former teammate to death.
Recalling the shooting on New Year’s Day, Marshall said he got a phone call from someone telling him what had happened and saw former teammate Javon Walker in a bloodstained shirt at a hospital, clutching a necklace that belonged to Williams. It has been reported that Williams’ death was the biggest reason for Brandon’s intension to take off Broncos jersey and leave for somewhere else. It’s possibly true considering his emotional manner on the trial.
The 26-year-old Clark is on trial for first-degree murder, 16 counts of attempted murder and other charges but maintains he is innocent and his defense attorneys argue he is a scapegoat as there is no direct evidence proving that he was the one who shot.
