WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Testimony concluded Friday in the latest hearing for John Goodman after witness testimony took much longer than expected Thursday.

Guards will remain in place to watch Goodman while he is under house arrest.

The next hearing will be March 6 at 8:30 a.m.

Goodman's attorneys want DUI manslaughter charges dropped because prosecutors failed to keep his damaged Bentley.

Former Goodman prosecutor Ellen Roberts took the stand and the defense grilled her Thursday about why she released the Bentley involved in the crash that struck Scott Wilson's car in 2010. Wilson's vehicle ended up in a canal, causing him to drown.

Goodman was found guilty of DUI manslaughter, but the conviction was later dropped after a juror was found guilty of contempt of court.

Goodman's attorney Doug Duncan argued that the vehicle is a critical piece of evidence and because it was released they can't have a fair trial.

But Roberts shot back and said the trial as she knew it was over because Goodman was convicted and, at the time of the Bentley's release, she couldn't foresee juror misconduct causing a new trial.

Several Palm Beach County Sheriff's investigators also took the stand as well as an engineer who examined the Bentley.

Goodman's re-trial is set to begin March 17.
