Forensic testimony supports prosecutors’ case in teenage shooting trial

Yesterday fifth day of testimony in the murder trial of Estevan Montoya, charged with shooting and killing Santa Fe basketball star Fedonta “JB” White, highlights a primary point of contention in the case: how the two teenagers were positioned when the shooting occurred. According to witnesses, it happened within seconds when the two met in the front yard of a house in Chupadero. The defense alleges that Montoya tried to escape the confrontation and fired when White gave chase. Prosecutors trying to prove first degree murder argue Montoya turned, put his feet up and shot White directly. dr Lauren Decker, a forensic pathology expert with the State Office of the Medical Investigator, testified that the bullet went down, indicating the gun was fired from above, which supported prosecutors’ argument that White was walking at the time or fell. The trial also addressed Montoya’s “first version” of the shooting, about 12 hours after the August 2020 shooting, in which he told a detective, “I didn’t shoot anyone.” Montoya has since backed down and said he had White shot in self-defense.
