I told you, Cody hasn't been in California for months.
I suppose he shot me all the way from another state.
What makes you think *he* shot you? Lots of people have guns.
I was as close to him as I am to you.
Anybody else see him?
Just you. And his wife.
Of course, being an old woman, I wouldn't know much about the law, but I hear you got to have *witnesses* to make anything stand up in court.
