I still can't really understand why NBC and OW were called as witnesses by the prosecution, unless to illustrate for the jury the sort of mentality Allison had to cope with from that quarter What did NBC and OW contribute as far as evidence is concerned? I thought their testimony was a load of drivel. It implanted in the minds of the jury that Allison was a long-term, useless, dependent depressive. And they were prosecution witnesses, weren't they? So did OW and NBC insist on having their ten minutes on the stand? Why then weren't they called by the defence, considering they added not a lot to the prosecution's case?
