The prosecutor asks if he intended to return to the Arab and kill him. Meursault replies no, it just happened. The witnesses are called, the home's director being first. He testifies that Meursault was very calm at the funeral: not crying, not wanting to see Maman, and leaving right after.The caretaker is the next witness and testifies how little Meursault seemed upset at Maman's coffin. It is ironic that Meursault's actual crime does not seem to be on trial rather than his indifference to emotion is.
