CHARLES TOWN, W.VA. - A woman who was working at Images nightclub the evening that Larry G. Hose was shot to death in the bar's parking lot testified Thursday that she saw Hose holding his hands up moments before he was shot.
Marcy Hall said she did not see anything in Hose's hands and did not see a knife on Feb. 9, 2003.
There were conflicting statements about whether Hose, 29, of Kearneysville, W.Va., had a knife during a confrontation with Raymond Hoak, who is standing trial this week in Hose's death.
Hoak has claimed he acted in self-defense in the shooting.
Hall, who now lives in Hampton, Va., testified in Jefferson County Circuit Court that she went back to the bar along W.Va. 51 in the Middleway, W.Va., area and rang a buzzer to get back in after Hose raised his hands in the air.
