No doubt Morris caught on cam killing officers, detective testifies

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

The lead detective in the Dontae Morris case testified at his murder trial Wednesday morning, saying "there was no doubt" that Morris is the one captured on video shooting and killing two Tampa police officers.

Henry Duran's testimony is the latest emotional replay of what happened the night of June 29, 2010, when David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab were killed.

"I've broken it down, every frame, into milliseconds," said Henry Duran, who says he's watched the gruesome dash cam video over and over again.

In Duran's opinion, it is undoubtedly Morris.

That's testimony is crucial for the prosecution after the defense alluded this could be a case of mistaken identity. The defense said the only reason Morris turned himself in was after seeing the massive manhunt for him.

On Wednesday, Duran totally refuted that.

"There is no doubt," he said.  

The medical examiner also testified Wednesday. Some of the officers' autopsy photos were shown in court.

The widows of those officers were there to see them.

If convicted, Morris could face the death penalty.
