SHARE WITNESS IN JORDAN MURDER CASE SAYS SUSPECT WORE VICTIM’S PANTS TO TRIAL

The district attorney prosecuting a man in the slaying of Michael Jordan's father ended testimony from his key witness with a disclosure that made the audience gasp - the defendant wore the victim's pants to court last week.

The testimony came Tuesday from Larry Martin Demery, who was Daniel Andre Green's childhood friend and also charged with the murder in the case. Demery, 20, pleaded guilty and agreed to testify against Green, 21. Both face possible death sentences.Demery said two suits were taken from James Jordan's car after he and defendant Green dropped Jordan's body in a South Carolina swamp.

"They were kept by Daniel," Demery told District Attorney Johnson Britt.

"When was the last time you saw them?" Britt asked.

"The last time I saw one of the suits being worn - it was only the pants - was last week right here in this courtroom," Demery said.

Spectators in the courtroom gasped and defense lawyers smiled and shook their heads. Demery did not say whether the pants were part of a gray suit or a blue pin-striped suit that he had seen in Jordan's car.

The defense was to question Demery Wednesday.

Jordan was shot to death in July 1993 as he napped in his car on a North Carolina road.
