Opening statements in David Dooley retrial

Opening arguments Wednesday showed a different approach for Dooley's defense. When he was previously convicted in 2014 of killing Mockbee, the argument was that there was no evidence and no real motive. Now they're taking the approach that there were plenty of other people who could have killed Mockbee.

The city quietly extended that grace period into February, though, to some residents' surprise.
