Tuesday, the alleged victim testified, that she had attempted to escape by jumping out of the suspect’s vehicle but was unable to because the car was locked.
She claims Kitchens then threatened her with a gun.
The defense reportedly spent a majority of their time attempting to discredit the woman’s story and what she told police.
Although the trial has just begun, it could be in the jury’s hands as early as Wednesday or Thursday.
