Katie Holmes Makes Surprising Appearance at Murder Trial

Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes


Katie Holmes made a surprising appearance at a murder trial in New York.

The actress, fresh off her run on Broadway in “Dead Accounts,” was spotted in the Queens Supreme Court on Wednesday, listening to the opening statements in the case against a man named Hang Bin Li, who’s facing 25 years to life for allegedly shaking his two-year-old daughter Annie to death back in 2007.

Holmes listened intently to the opening argument of prosecutor Leigh Bishop, whom we’re told the actress was in attendance to support because the two are friends.

After hearing the case’s opening, Holmes, who sat quietly in the back, left the courtroom without fanfare.
