BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A second witness took the stand and testified on tape Thursday in the attempted second-degree murder case against Denako Duheart.

Tarshetka Thompson's testimony was recorded for a jury to hear later.

District Attorney Hillar Moore is concerned because three witnesses against Duheart in another case died. 

Thompson identified Duheart as the triggerman in a shooting near Scenic and Chippewa last month.

"We're just being cautious," Moore said. "He's presumed innocent. We did this once before. This is our second witness. We had a good day today and we're ready to go to trial."

Duheart remains in jail on a $200,000 bond.
