Rideout trial focuses on forensics, including DNA and cord allegedly used for strangulation

Various pieces of clothing discovered stuffed in the trunk of a car found at Mendon Ponds Park were blood-stained, and prosecutors hope to use the evidence to incriminate those accused of killing Craig Rideout.

On Monday, the testimony started about DNA evidence that prosecutors earlier said would be key building blocks in the criminal case. That testimony, from Monroe County Crime Laboratory forensics specialist Elaine Hamilton, began on Monday and will continue Tuesday.

She and another lab expert are expected to discuss the DNA evidence over the coming days.
