Jurors heard testimony in the Michael Sabo murder trial, Tuesday.
The murder trial of Michael Sabo continues in the Pike County Courthouse.
Sabo has been charged with murder, theft, assault, aggravated burglary, and aggravated robbery following a Morgans Fork Road home invasion in February of 2011. It took all day Monday to empanel the jury.
In the incident, homeowner Matt Nichols shot and killed one of the two intruders after they assaulted him, stole his long guns, and threatened his life. Sabo is alleged to have pointed a gun at the homeowner; the man identified Sabo months later, and he was arrested.
Sabo's murder charge stems from Sabo allegedly causing the death of his accused accomplice, Tommy Price, by involving Price in the robbery.
The homeowner testified this morning, as did his EMT mother, who treated the robber Tommy Price with two gunshot wounds in his lower back, and said she heard his accusation of Mark Van Dyke.
Before going to an afternoon recess, jurors heard testimony from the man the dying victim supposedly identified as his fleeing accomplice...however, Van Dyke had been severely wounded 9 days before in another crime, and coudn't say why he was accused.
The last testimony Tuesday was from a cocky self-described full-time drug dealer, Tommy Reed - who went so far as to mouth off to the defense attorney when he accused Reed of being part of the robbery plan.
