Johnny Oquendo's murder trial took a bizarre turn Thursday when his defense attorney accused a key prosecution witness of having a sexual encounter with a dog and logging onto numerous bestiality websites.
"I did not have sex with a dog," the witness, Amanda Whitman, repeatedly testified in Rensselaer County Court during cross-examination by Assistant Public Defender William Roberts.
The attorney pressed Whitman about an alleged self-shot video of her engaging in a sex act with a dog — and threatened to play it in court to impeach her credibility.
Whitman, the ex-girlfriend of the defendant, later invoked her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination several times because she could potentially be charged with sexual misconduct, a misdemeanor sexual offense, for alleged sex with animals. The judge appointed a lawyer, Matthew Foley, to represent her, and he advised her as she took the Fifth.
Roberts mentioned the names of numerous websites Whitman had logged onto that implied she had an interest in sexual relations between humans and horses, gorillas and chimpanzees. He contends that her browser history indicated she viewed hundreds of the sites.
Oquendo, 40, is accused of strangling his 21-year-old stepdaughter, Noel Alkaramla, on Nov. 22, 2015, in his third-floor apartment at 170 Third Street in Troy.
Prosecutors allege Oquendo used a plastic supermarket shopping bag to strangle Alkaramla, then stuffed her body in a suitcase, dragged the luggage to the Hudson River and tossed it in the water. The suitcase was recovered Dec. 30, 2015, near Albany.
