The murder trial of defendants Kailie Brackett and Donnell Dana continued Monday, with the state calling three witnesses to testify, including a podiatrist who claimed Brackett’s footprints match the ones found in blood at the apartment of the victim, Kimberly Neptune.

Michael Steven Nirenberg, DPM focused on the footprints discovered at Neptune’s apartment, using prints and images of the defendant’s feet taken by law enforcement. After study, he claimed the prints at the scene bear a resemblance to Kailie Brackett’s, in the width of the foot. The defense questioned the field of forensic podiatry and pressed Dr. Nirenberg on whether the measurements would be altered depending on how thick the sock covering the foot was.
