Back in July of 2016, police found the body of 23-year-old Alexis Lynn Stormo along the 400 block of Tumbleweed Trail near Ruch.
35-year-old Todd Wilcox was arrested for the crime.
Today, the prosecution brought in several witnesses including a detective who interviewed Wilcox after Stormo’s death. He testified that Wilcox had bruises and other marks on his hands that were consistent with being in a physical altercation.
Police say Stormo had been attacked and the defense is also saying she had drugs in her system.
During cross examination, a detective confirmed that even though they took clippings of Wilcox’s fingernails and a swab of his DNA, the samples were never tested.
The trial is expected to last more than two weeks.
