PHOENIX (KSAZ) - Officer Goitia took the stand Tuesday afternoon detailing what he says happened the morning his fellow officer was shot and killed.

Prosecutors in the morning called Patsy Jones who was in the back seat of the car that Officer's Goitia and Holly stopped.

"I see Officer Holly's body raising up and a lot of blood, I was scared the officer was going to shoot me," said Patsy Jones.

Emotional testimony from the prosecution's first witness, Patsy Jones.

Jones said she was in the back seat of the car that Bryan Hulsey got out of before he allegedly shot and killed Glendale Police officer Anthony Holly in 2007.

Jones said she saw Hulsey pull a gun from his pants and point it at the officer.

"He pulled it, then turned it like this," said Jones.

Prosecutors asked her who he was pointing the gun at, she replied "the officers."

"One of the officers was telling him hold up, hold up," she said.

The prosecutor asked her what happened next. "The first shot was fired," said Jones.

Jones said she and Hulsey had smoked meth before being stopped by police. She said that Hulsey asked her to get rid of the pipe when they were pulled over, she didn't know that Officer Holly was shot until the gunfire stopped, and she got out of the car.

"I put my hands up; I was looking at the other officer, I said don't shoot me, and I took another step and was like, oh my god, and I saw the officer down," said Jones.

Jones, who was going through chemo at the time, left the scene and was later arrested.

Defense attorneys say Officer Holly was killed by friendly fire from his fellow officer who was shooting at Hulsey. They wanted to know exactly what Jones saw and what she didn't.

"I didn't see the officer get hit," said Jones.

"And you didn't even see him go down, right?" asked a defense attorney.

They questioned her credibility. "I thought you said this morning you saw him fire 4 shots," said the attorney. "I saw him fire 3 shots," said Jones.

"By the time you were interviewed that night, were you still feeling the effects of the meth, or were you coming down from it," asked the attorney. "No, I was not feeling anything from it," said Jones.

"Do you understand someone is on trial for murder," asked the attorney, Jones replied, "Yes."

Testimony wrapped up around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, the trial is expected to continue on Wednesday. If convicted, Hulsey faces the death penalty.
