Day Four: Levi King Trial

By Katie Bauer  - bio | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Levi King Trial is one day closer to wrapping up, testimony continued in the punishment phase on Wednesday.  King confessed last week to the September 2005 killings of Brian Conrad, his pregnant wife Michell, and her 14-year-old son Zach Doan. Michell's 10-year-old daughter was the only survivor.

King's trial was moved from Gray County to Lubbock because of extensive media coverage. Day four of the King trial continued on Wednesday, with the prosecution calling deputies from McDonald County in Missouri.

Before King killed the Pampa family, he killed a couple in Pineville, Missouri.

The deputies extradited King from El Paso back to Missouri, testified before the court on Wednesday. Jurors saw pictures of the Missouri crime scene they also listened to King's second taped confession to McDonald County deputies.  He originally confessed to El Paso Police Detectives, but later said that he didn't tell the whole truth.

He told the Missouri deputies that he snuck in the Missouri couple's home through a window, with intent to steal keys to a car.  When the couple returned home, King didn't say anything, he just stepped out of the closet he was hiding in and shot the couple.

King sounded very calm in the audio tape recording; he even let out a couple of laughs while being interviewed by the deputies.

He then stole the maroon truck from the Missouri couple, as well as a gun, he then went to his dad's house where he got more guns before he fled into Arkansas, and eventually through Texas to Mexico.

When asked if he did anything else along the way, he told deputies in the audio taped interview that the only thing that he did was pick up a female hitchhiker.

Last to take the stand were crime lab investigators they wrapped up day four of Wednesday's trial.
