A key witness in the trial of James Crumbley, the father of the Oxford High School shooter, testified that James accompanied his son Ethan to purchase the gun used in the attack.

The gun shop employee said James had expressed interest in the specific Sig Sauer handgun “for quite some time” and paid for it in cash.

“The son was standing behind him,” Cammy Back said. “Mr. Crumbley asked to see the Sig Sauer, said that he’d had his eye on it for quite some time.”

Prosecutors allege James was negligent in failing to secure the gun properly at home and ignoring signs of Ethan’s distress.

While Ethan referred to the gun as “my beauty” online and said his money was used, James’ trial has not explored who paid.

James is barred from unrestricted device use in jail after making “threatening statements.”

He and his wife Jennifer, convicted last month, are the first U.S. parents charged over a school shooting by their child.
