Former cellmate testifies against Johnson

Defense attorney unable to shake up witness

Malinda Gonzales, former cellmate of Sarah Johnson. Now in its fourth week, the double murder trial of Sarah M. Johnson, 18, of Bellevue, opened Feb. 1 in 4th District Court at the Ada County Courthouse in Boise. The trial was moved to Boise early in January when 5th District Judge Barry Wood ruled it was impractical to attempt to panel a non-biased jury in Blaine County where the crime was committed. Johnson is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of her parents, Alan Johnson, 46, and Diane Johnson, 52, in their Bellevue home Sept. 2, 2003. If convicted, she faces life in prison.
