Dallas Cowboys players appear in court to testify in Josh Brent trial

Two Dallas Cowboys players appeared in court Thursday to testify in court.

Their former teammate, defensive tackle Josh Brent, is on trial. Brent is being charged with intoxication manslaughter, from a car wreck that left a practice squad player dead in December 2012.

The two that testified were safeties Barry Church and Danny McCray. Both went to dinner and a nightclub with Brent the night of the crash.

Both Church and McCray said they don't remember how much Brent drank that night.

Prosecutors said credit card receipts showed Brent bought drinks at dinner and 3 bottles of champagne at the nightclub.

Dash-cam video was also presented at the trial, showing Brent fail his sobriety test after the wreck.

Irving police conducted a blood test on Brent after the wreck. His blood alcohol levels were more than twice the legal limit that night.

According to one prosecution witness, toxicologist Justin Schwane, the 320-pound Brent would have had to have 17 drinks to get that drunk.

If convicted, Brent faces up to 20 years in prison.
