Day 3 Sarah Johnson in Court

Twin Falls


By Jay Michaels

Sarah Johnson’s bid to get a new trial continued today in a Twin Falls County courtroom.
Johnson’s former boyfriend Bruno Santos was ushered into the courtroom wearing shackles and an orange jumpsuit.
Defense attorney Christopher Simms talked to Santos through an interpreter about the double murder of Sarah Johnson’s parents Alan and Diane Johnson on September 2nd, 2003.
Bruno Santos's mother also took the witness stand today.
Simms asked her about the things she said in interviews with police and her testimony during Sarah Johnson’s trial in 2005.
But she repeatedly said she couldn't remember anything – and apologized several times to the defense attorney.
