Both sides rest in Sanders trial

Local News

Both sides have rested in the trial of Kathrine Sanders after prosecutors called her already convicted co-defendant to the stand to point the finger at her as his accomplice.

Sanders is charged with burglary with intent to commit another felony, the same charge co-defendant

Cocshi Robinson was charged with before he took a plea deal on a lesser charge, and agreed to testify. 

Robinson rebutted Sanders claim that she wasn’t even at the scene because she was visiting a sick relative in the hospital. A claim police officers said was false because that relative died three days before the day she said she visited him.

Robinson and Sanders were arrested for the 2017 burglary on Polk Street, and assault of then 83-year-old Willie Wall that left him severely injured.

On the stand Thursday morning, Robinson testified Sanders was with him during the crime, and his former girlfriend, Juanita Mack, had nothing to do with it.

Officers said three people were involved in the crime, and Sanders appeared to point the finger at Mack when she told police Mack had borrowed her black SUV that morning—the vehicle witnesses saw at the scene.

Wall, the Wichita County judge’s administrative aide, told police Sanders knew where money was in his house because she had helped care for his sick wife.

Sanders took the stand in her defense this afternoon, sticking to her claim she wasn’t at the scene of the crime.

Prosecutors told jurors Sanders has told lie after lie and changed her story.

Both Robinson and Mack were transferred from prisons to Wichita County earlier this week.

Closing arguments are set for Monday morning.
