BUFFALO, N.Y. ( WKBW ) Channel 7's Ed Reilly is in court as the manslaughter trial of Dr. James Corasanti continues.

He is accused in the hit and run death that claimed the life of Alexandria Rice.

Click the video for Ed's report from Eyewitness News at Noon on the testimony delivered Friday morning.

On Friday a bartender from the country club Dr. Corasanti had been at testified that he had served him rum and coke drinks along with martinis.

The mother-in-law of Dr. Corasanti testified that his wife drove home separately.

One key witness who took the stand said he observed the car Dr. Corasanti was driving speeding, and crossing over the white line. He said he saw Alexandria Rice earlier skateboarding on the road, and then later heard what was described as an "ungodly sound." He responded by pulling over to look for what he thought was the young girl he saw. He testified that after a search he found her body.

Legal Analyst Barry Covert will join Eyewitness News at 5:30pm with Ed Reilly at the courthouse with the latest.
