“My heart hit the floor,” Alex Williams said when asked what her initial reaction to the charges were. “I just knew he couldn't have done those things. That's not in his character.”

Vouching for the character of Darrell Williams, Page testified that he was not at the party and has no direct knowledge of the incident, but said he could never see Williams committing this kind of violent crime.

Williams has decided not to take the stand, but his initial 30-minute interview with police, telling his side of the story, was played in court Wednesday. The interview took place at Gallagher-Iba Arena on Dec. 16, 2010.

The trial resumes Monday at 9 a.m., with closing arguments and jury instructions expected.
