A drug dealer's ex-girlfriend testified against accused murderer Michael Sabo, as the defense continues to hammer at law enforcement.
The former girlfriend - of the self-described drug dealer who testified Tuesday - gave her testimony in the Pike County murder trial of Michael Sabo Wednesday morning.
She described the visits of Sabo, on the overnight of February 7, 2011, around a home invasion that led to a fatal shooting. She claims Sabo finally returned a car and said his partner Tony Price had been shot.
An investigating officer testified as to what he saw and photographed at the crime scene. The defense asked how the rifle homeowner Matt Nichols used had left two live rounds in the mobile home, and possibly four spent rounds outside, when it may hold only four rounds total.
Late morning testimony had the defense continuing to counter with questions about investigative procedures, the time line as to when Sabo was identified as a suspect, and what they claimed was improper photo lineup procedure.
The prosecution rested after lunch and the defense took up their lead for the rest of the trial, continuing to pick at procedure and investigation.
After the 2:30 recess, both sides agreed to adjourn until 9am Thursday after one juror suddenly became ill and had to go to the hospital. It is hoped she can rejoin the trial in the morning, instead of seating an alternate juror.
The trial may reach closing arguments Thursday.
