The second week of testimony will begin Monday in the John Young forgery trial.

Last week during testimony the focus was on the will of John Sullivan and whether it was written by somebody else.  

Sullivan was found dead in his Santa Rita home two days after the date on his purported hand-written will in June of 2014

On Friday the state called bail bondsman Armando Martinez to the witness stand.

He testified he and Ray Zapata were the ones who found the body of 74 year-old John Sullivan.

Martinez testified Zapata called the defendant John Young twice before calling 911, which Martinez ultimately did.

Defense attorneys say an expert on handwriting analysis will testify at some point during the trial.
