JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Former U.S. Senate majority leader Trent Lott did not have to stay long when he visited Hinds County Circuit Court Thursday morning. Lott was the first to take the stand in the trial of the man accused of burglarizing his Hinds County home.

According to those inside Judge Swan Yerger's courtroom, Lott briefly testified that he owned the property and he was not at home at the time of the incident on April 27, 2009.

Wednesday was day two of testimony in the trial of David Anthony Jackson. Jackson is accused of breaking into Lott's home near Pocahontas.
