The jury was excluded late Tuesday afternoon and again this morning as Presiding Judge Joseph J. Barr heard testimony of state's witnesses as to the taking of an alleged confession statement from Fisher after the slaying. Defense Counsel Austin Lewis had contended the statement was given under duress, and testimony of witnesses to it was heard by the court outside the presence of the jury before a ruling on admissability of the statement. Defense Attorney Lewis reserved his opening statement to the jury until after the state's [evidence had been presented. State's witnesses Tuesday afternoon included medical testimony that the defendant's father, George Fisher, 48, had died of shotgun and pistol wounds to the heart. Assistant State's Attorney Burton Bernard, in an opening statement to the Jury for the prosecution Tuesday afternoon, said the state intended to prove that the defendant, who had dropped out of school about the first of the year, and remained "calm and unruffled" after the slaying. Bernard, in the opening statement, said there was a jacket on a chair near the father's body with the legend "King of the Lone Wolves" imprinted on the back and that young Fisher was wearing a similar jacket when taken to the county jail after the slaying.
