BATON ROUGE- DNA experts told jurors some blood found in Harris car and on detergent bottles inside the couple's home was a mixture of Chiquita Tate and Greg Harris' blood.

Allyson Saadi told jurors, there's a one in 32.5 quadrillion chance it belongs to someone else.  Harris is accused of stabbing Tate to death over 40 times in her downtown law office two years ago. 

According to defense attorneys that evidence doesn't prove a thing.

"It proves Chiquita and Greg lived in their home together, that's it," Sclynski Legier said.

Prosecutors disagreed.

"Innocent people don't just have blood on their wallets, caps in their car or different locations that fit this crime," Prem Burns said.

Testimony is expected to continue through the weekend.  Prosecutors still have at least 15 witnesses left to testify.
