Witnesses relay stories of encounters with Stewart
More witnesses testify they had close encounters with Robert Stewart the day he murdered eight people inside the Pinelake Health And Rehabilitation Center two years ago. Former Nurse Darlene Harris recalled how she bumped into Stewart by accident after pushing a wheelchair-bound patient ot safety. Suddenly the two stood eye-to-eye, the burly killer and terrified nurse. Miraculously, she testified Wednesday, Stewart turned down a hallway. She jumped through a window to safety, only to suffer a mild heart attack. Harris ended up in the Moore Regional Hospital Emergency Room along Stewart who was being treated for a gunshot wound. At her insistence medical personnel covered Harris’ face with a sheet. Harris explained she was terrified that if Stewart recognized her she would be killed like the others. A nurse who attended Stewart in the hospital less than an hour after the murders said he appeared “very alert” and calm during he reexamination of him. Rebecca Powell testified that Stewart was abnormally calm for someone in his situation. Nurse Powell sad he never appeared confused and was coherent through his treatment. Several witnesses have testified that Stewart was deliberate in his actions during the blood-bath, reloading as he walked the halls in search of more victims.More witnesses testify they had close encounters with Robert Stewart the day he murdered eight people inside the Pinelake Health And Rehabilitation Center two years ago.
