Doctor: Victim died within 15 minutes


“It tends to rip.”

The blood that flowed from Rennie’s liver and into his abdominal cavity was between 8,000 and 1,000 millileters, about one-quarter of Rennie’s total body blood volume, Sikirica said.

“Even with treatment, it would very likely cause death.”

Rennie’s lungs had also partially collapsed, Sikirica said.

“You very well could die from those injuries (alone).”


Sikirica said he found no injury to Rennie that would have resulted in a loss of consciousness.

There were no fractures in the man’s face, the doctor said, and the absence of a bloodshot appearance in his eyes indicated that there had been no restriction of blood flow to his head.

In the afternoon, the jury viewed the tape of Denno’s Sept. 11, 2012, interview with State Police.

Court resumes at 9:30 a.m. today.
