Horse Tracks - 3/2/10 - Witness places gun in Clark's hands


Good Morning, Broncos Country!  The trial of Wille Clark, the man police believe pulled the trigger the night Darrent Williams was killed, entered its second week yesterday with the prosecution's key witness taking the stand.  Daniel 'Ponytail' Harris was with Clark the night of the murder and says he saw Clark pull the trigger of the gun that fired multiple bullets into the stretch limo carrying Williams, Javon Walker and others.  It is this testimony of a man already in prison on drug charges, that will likely be the key to the case.
