Girlfriend of Man Accused in Stabbing Takes The Stand
DUBUQUE - The girlfriend of a Dubuque man accused of murder took the stand on Friday.
Michael Mayton is on trial for the stabbing death of David Tate. Prosecutors say it happened during a street fight last summer.
Several people who live in that area testified in court on Friday.
Mayton's girlfriend Dawn Soppesays she did not see anyone stab anyone that day. Soppe says this is because she was hit in the head with a glass bottle.
The trial will resume on Tuesday.
