HAYWARD - Its day two of the trial for a man who was allegedly involved in a thrill kill.The trial is for Christopher Roalson who allegedly stabbed and killed a 93–year–old woman from Radisson, Wis.
"Did Chris ever use your knife?” asked Sawyer County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Gary Gillis.
“I handed it to him," replied murder accomplice Austin Davis.
The hearing started off with a recorded interview from Davis.
"Did your knife have blood,” asked Gillis.
“I didn't look at it,” said Davis. “I think it had not as much as his though, his was like pouring blood, mine was just kind of smeared."
The attorneys focused in on who allegedly used the stool to beat Irena and the bloody knives.
"You know that there was no drops of blood found anywhere on any floor in that house right?” asked Defense Attorney Donna Kuchler.
"That’s correct," said Gillis.
"So he couldn't have seen a knife that was pouring blood," said Kuchler.
Attorneys brought in investigators and experts to the witness stand to go through the evidence with a fine tooth comb.
"Is that how the gloves looked when you found them?” asked prosecuting attorney Bruce Poquette.
"Yes they were just the plain yellow gloves," said Gillis.
"I wanna be careful here, were they not inside out when you found them." asked Kuchler.
"Yes," said Gillis.
"So they weren't like that they were turned inside out correct?” said Kuchler.
Attorneys pointed out inconsistencies on whether the house was really burglarized because there were pills and more than $4,000 dollars left in the home.
"If a person has been there and didn't take the drawers physically out of the dresser, you wouldn't see that money,” asked Kuchler.
"I can't answer that," Wisconsin Department of Justice Special Agent Robert Powell said.
"Could drugs be included in common items that are taken," asked Poquette.
"Absolutely," said Powell.
Day two wraps up with more testimony and evidence all looking to find out who really killed Irena Roszak.
Roalson is facing one count of first degree intentional homicide and two counts of burglary.
