BY "alibi" I meant the defendants story of what happened, not a claim to not have been there. If I misused that I apologize. My point is that GZ's story is not now accepted as proven though he is rightly now and forevermore assumed innocent of the crime. Since his story is not proven we can't claim to know what happened in any area where alternative scenarios which do not involve magic can be proposed. I believe that there are at least several which could explain GZ's wounds without thereby making TM the initial aggressor. He could have been acting out of fear for his life. I am not saying that is what happened, but it is not far fetched or out of the realm of non-fantastic possibilities. We don't know the answer.
