A witness told jurors Monday that she will never forget the face of a man accused of stabbing two kids in a deadly elevator attack — but she had trouble remembering what the suspect was wearing.
Annabelle Diaz-Alston said she was shocked when she saw the lifeless body of her 6-year-old godson, Prince Joshua Avitto, carried out of an East New York housing complex on June 1, 2014. But her description of what the suspect was wearing was different from what prosecutors said suspect Daniel St. Hubert had on that day.
In videos shown to the jury in Brooklyn Supreme Court, St. Hubert was wearing long blue jean shorts, white socks, black sneakers and a purple-blue T-shirt with black sunglasses.
Diaz-Alston suggested during cross-examination in the murder trial that St. Hubert had “ample time” to change his clothes.
The boy’s 7-year-old friend, Mikayla Capers, survived the attack.
