Day Two: Levi King Murder Trial

By Katie Bauer  - bio | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Levi King trial is in recess until Tuesday. The judge concluded Friday's testimony around noon.

Before that, jury members heard from the forensic pathologist who performed autopsies on the victims, 31-year-old Brian Conrad, 35-year-old Michell Conrad, and her son 14-year-old Zach Doan. They all died of multiple gunshot wounds. Michell Conrad was pregnant at the time, but the state dropped the murder charge for the unborn child.

Levi King, 26, pleaded guilty to three counts of capital murder on Thursday. He faces life in prison without parole or the death penalty.

On the first day of trial jurors heard King admit to killing the Pampa family, just hours after murdering a couple in Missouri. He was sentenced to two life sentences for the Missouri murders.

The prosecution told jurors King entered the Conrad home firing rounds at everyone inside, including the sole survivor, Michell's 10-year-old daughter Robin, and the family dog. King fired a round at the 10-year-old girl but missed, and she pretended to be dead.

The trial will resume Tuesday morning in the Lubbock County Courthouse.
