Prosecution Wraps Up In Lexington Murder Trial

Prosecutors rested their case Wednesday in the murder trial of a Lexington eye doctor.

Michael Flick is charged with killing co-worker Christine Wittich and shooting his former business partner, Dr. Randall Lambrith, back in 2005.

Lambrith says Flick threatened his life after Flick was fired from his job at a Lexington Lenscrafters location.

Lambrith took the stand earlier this week to testify against Flick.

The defense started arguing its case Wednesday afternoon. There's no word on how long the trial is expected to last.

    If you went in and saw your long time girlfriend bleeding to death on the floor would you remember every single detail? When your in shock you don't feel pain. So what you call "interesting" isn't so interesting, it's what you would expect from being in that situation. I am glad that Flick will have enough time to talk with God and realize what he has done and how many lives he has disturbed. My heart and prayers go out to Christina's family and friends. I know this won't bring Christina back but I hope it will give them some peace in their hearts.

    Interesting that Chris is certain that Flick was wearing a long wool coat, even though none was entered into evidence. Small buttons were entered into evidence, but somehow they conveniently lost a floor-length coat?? Randall remembers no coat. Flick isn't the only one with a failed memory. Interesting.

    She had already been shot and was laying on the floor when he arrived to find her. She was not shot during the struggle. It is murder...period. If they didn't stop him when they did the police would still be looking for the killer and Flick would know nothing......of course.

    In attending the trial, it was interesting that Randall was unable to verify when he was shot. If during a struggle or before. The can't verify trajectory of bullets hitting Chrissy, nor anyone who took the clothes from Mr Flick. No gun residue on hand or glove, and gun is so small it would be impossible to wear glove and pull trigger. Still question what really happened.

    Flick deserves no mercy. He is guilty!!! His actions have affected so many lives. We hope he rots in prison. Our thoughts and prayers are with Chrissy's family and Randall and his family. I'm just sorry they have to relive all of this 2 1/2 years later. Hopefully there will be peace for everyone involved after this is over.

    I second the comment from Florence staff! But I don't think he should rot in jail while we pay for him to stay in there. Death penalty all the way!!

    WOW! This idiot deserves the worse possible treatment! There is NO way that he was disoriented and he "accidentally" shot Chrissy! Loser! Hope he rots in prison!
