Witness: I sold the car to "hit-and-run granny"

A former car salesman testified that he sold a Mercury Sable station wagon to one of the "hit-and-run grannies" accused of using the car to kill a homeless man in a murder-for-life-insurance scheme.

Although it doesn't sound like he was the greatest witness, the man was the first eyewitness to tie Olga Rutterschmidt, 75, to the car that prosecutors say was the murder weapon in the death of Kenneth McDavid, 50, in an alley in West Los Angeles in 2005.

She and Helen Golay, 77, are charged with killing McDavid and another homeless man for insurance benefits.
