Day 3 of accused porn star's rape trial

COLFAX, Wash. - A self-proclaimed porn star accused of rape has another day in court.

Prosecutors say Christopher Reid raped a Washington State University sorority member last September. On Wednesday, some of their main witnesses took the stand.

Day three of the trial for Reid began with testimony from police officers in Pullman and Washington State University. Much of the testimony centered on evidence taken from the sorority house where the alleged rape occurred.

Forensic scientists from the WSP Crime Lab focused their testimony on evidence, which included a condom wrapper found inside the room and a rape kit from the hospital. Testing form that rape kit found sperm cells on samples taken from the victim.

During the trail today it was also learned scientists obtained DNA samples of Reid and Kyle Schott, the other man also initially accused of rape. They found DNA that may have matched that of Reid's, Schott's and the victim's on the condom wrapper.

Despite how it appears though, the results proved inconclusive.

"My conclusion was that one in three individuals is a potential contributor to this profile," Crime Lab Scientist Lisa Turpen said.

A good portion of the morning was spent explaining the DNA testing process, which is a highly complicated and detailed process. Witness testimony wrapped up for the day just a few minutes ago.

The trial continues Thursday morning.
