The state is challenging the testimony of three expert witnesses for the defense. Wednesday’s hearing  involved an expert in defense tactics and use of force.

Prosecutors want to make sure he doesn't try to interpret video of the shooting for the jury.

Reeves has pleaded not guilty and claims he shot Oulson in self-defense.
