lane garrsonAs we wait for Lane to get rolling on the stand, the prior witness testified Garrison's childhood was tragic.

The witness said the Garrison family was poor. "When there was no food in his fridge, my mom would let me take food from my pantry to him."

The witness said Lane's mom died of a rare disease and his dad was abusive. Four years ago, Garrison's father died of cancer.

As Lane listened, he sobbed.
