The cousin of a teenager who police say was stabbed by a Harvard graduate student sobs on the witness stand.

Samuel Rodriguez testified Monday in Cambridge Massachusetts in
the trial of Harvard student Alexander Pring-Wilson of Colorado.
Pring-Wilson is accused of killing 18-year-old Michael Colono last
year outside a pizzeria in Cambridge.

Rodriguez testified about a fight that broke out after Colono made a derogatory remark about Pring-Wilson's apparent drunkenness.

Rodriguez says he didn't realize Colono had been stabbed until
his cousin had trouble breathing. He sobbed recounting his cousin's last moments.

A defense attorney contends Pring-Wilson acted in self-defense.
