Day 3: Levi King trial resumes Tuesday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Levi King murder trial has been in recess since Friday, and will resume Tuesday morning and a sentence is expected. 

On Friday, 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.

Day one of the trial included jurors hearing 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 where a sentence is expected for Levi King.

NewsChannel 11 will be in the courtroom for the duration of the trial and will be bringing you updates as soon as they are available on kcbd.com and on the news at Noon, 5, 6, and 10.
