It's been over two years since Hannah Barnes and Michael Hennen were killed in a tragic train accident.
However, the legal battle is just beginning.
Hannah's mother, Lisa, is suing Hannah's former employer, Hennen's Restaurant, for supplying her with alcohol. She believes her daughter was given alcohol on August 21, 2011, which led her to lie down on train tracks at McDonald's Farm. The next morning, she and Hennen, 27, were killed by a passing train.
Barnes is suing the restaurant for $25,000,000.
Jury selection was Tuesday, and the trial began Wednesday. Thursday, several witnesses were called to the stand.
Among them, Lisa's sister Rhonda Strauss... who testified against her. She said her niece regularly consumed alcohol, and their deaths shouldn't be blamed on the restaurant.
Prosecuting Attorney Mark Warren asked Strauss if she was happy to be in court, because she contacted Defense Attorney, Al Henry, on her own accord.
"Am I happy to be here? Absolutely not. Absolutely not! This is wrong. It's wrong. It's absolutely dead wrong."
The defense also called former Hennen's Manager, Chad Cox, to the stand.
In his testimony, he said that servers were able to taste wines that had potential to be added to the menu.
He also said in his four years as Manager, he let kitchen staff have a drink "on the house" no more than five times.
However, he said he did not provide Barnes with alcohol the night of her death.
The case will continue into Friday, and possibly next week.
