BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

Scientific evidence and technology were the main points of testimony in the Earnest Daise trial Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, a cell phone technician testified that the victim, Jeanine Mullen, called Earnest Daise 17 times on November 15, 2009.

Nearly all of those calls went to his voicemail.

A DNA expert from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division testified about the three blood stains found on Daise's pants.

One of those stains matched the defendant by a 1 in 80 quadrillion chance of not being anyone else.

The second belonged to Jeanine Mullen and the third was a mixture with Mullen "not being able to be excluded as a minor contributor" and Daise being the major contributor.

A forensic pathologist from MUSC performed the autopsies on both victims. He testified that Waltfredo Mullen died from a single gunshot wound to the upper left side of his forehead.

Jeanine Mullen sustained two gunshot wounds, one to her left thigh and the other to the middle of her forehead.

He concluded both deaths were homicides.

The state has rested its case.

Testimony will pick up Thursday morning with the defense presenting its side.
