Annotation: Part of a series of training demonstrations by practicing trial lawyers and law enforcement officers in a criminal prosecution, this film describes a robbery and murder by a 23-year-old man and his 16-year-old accomplice.
Abstract: The film details the robbery of the Big Ten Party Store and Beverage House in Ann Arbor, Mich., the assault on the part-time stock clerk, and the binding and gagging of the proprietor who was later found dead. Particular aspects of the crime shown in the film include the use of weapons by the adult assailant and his accomplice, the way in which the robbery was conducted, and the way in which the proceeds of the robbery were divided. The role of the county medical examiner is shown in determining the death of the proprietor and in making a photographic record of the event, as is the process of identifying and handling evidence considered important to the case. For a detailed look at other aspects of the case, see NCJ 77645-59.
