SANFORD, Fla. -- The state has rested its case in the James Hataway attempted murder trial.
A black curtain was drawn to protect a man who met Hataway in the Seminole County Jail and testified against him on Thursday.
Thomas Malloy is now a member of the federal witness protection program. He said Hataway bragged about knowing how to break people's necks and testified that Hataway admitted he attacked Rachel Clarke and wanted advice on covering it up.
The defense argued that Malloy is testifying against Hataway to get his sentence reduced. He is in jail for a prison fight that left an inmate dead.
Hataway is accused of trying to kill Clarke after the two left a party together in 2008.
