Prosecutors call tape "smoking gun"
BATON ROUGE- Prosecutors called a piece of evidence played in court for the high profile murder trial of a Baton Rouge attorney a "smoking gun" today.
The interrogation tape played for jurors shows Greg Harris admitting he was in the Gardere area the night Tate was murdered.
Tate's wallet was found near Gardere the night she was killed in her downtown law office.
Harris is accused of stabbing her to death.
Prosecutors believe the tape is crucial.
"We know the reason he went to Gardere was to drop the wallet off," prosecutor Prem Burns said.
"It's pretty powerful, to me, the smoking gun of the tape."
Defense lawyers again said the tape did not prove a thing.
"They make up all this stuff," Lewis Unglesby said.
The trial is scheduled to resume in the morning.
