They called just one witness, Dr. Ann Kristin Neuhaus. She is the consulting physician who provided the second opinion required by Kansas law for the procedure.
Lawyers for Dr. George Tiller plan to begin presenting their evidence today. They will try to show that Tiller had no improper financial or legal connections with Neuhaus.
The defense moved for an acquittal immediately after the state rested today, arguing the prosecution failed to present enough evidence to support a guilty verdict.
Sedgwick County District Judge Clark Owens rejected the motion, finding there was adequate evidence of financial ties between Tiller and Neuhaus to send the question to the jury.
