3 cell mates testify
Closing statements by State and Defense

There were seven people who testified and put Allison Moore at the scene of the crime Dec. 30, 2012. Four young men involved in the crime that resulted in Nancy Hershman’s death, now ages 18 to 22, took the stand in the beginning days of the six day trial, saying Moore held the gun and two said they heard the shot and saw the flash. The other two boys never got out of the car. But, before the State and the Defense would rest, three more people, cell mates of Moore’s, would make statements that implicated her in the murder, mainly through her own statements in jail.
