Star witness Derrick Miller’s testimony Monday triggered the most animated facial expressions from Kwame Kilpatrick during the four-month trial.
At one point early Monday, Kilpatrick scowled, scoffed and shook his head while staring at the jury when Miller testified for the government about the ex-mayor’s support of a riverfront casino project.
The casino was pitched by businessman Jon Rutherford, a homeless shelter operator who bankrolled Kilpatrick’s campaigns and nonprofit group.
At another point, Kilpatrick nodded and stared at the jury when Miller said the mayor supported a riverfront casino that included a convention center.
Miller, meanwhile, has testified in a calm, even voice while responding to questions from Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Chutkow.
