WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - The second day of the Corey Trumbull murder trial in Wichita County wrapped up on Aug. 23.
Trumbull is accused of killing an 11-year-old, Logan Cline, and abandoning his body in a car in Wichita Falls.
Prosecutors provided compelling evidence in the courtroom. Prosecutors called the Lead Detective on the case, Betty Dean.
She explained the evidence she found after seizing the car Trumbull and Johnson were driving.
Make-shift weapons and various knives were found and shown to the court.
The most compelling evidence was a video of Trumbull and Johnson forcing the 11-year-old victim to engage in sexual activities with Trumbull.
Trumbull constantly fidgeted as the court watched the tapes. Footage and audio recordings were also presented.
The tapes disclosed that the defendant changed the story about Logan’s whereabouts four times.
He continued to express he had never harmed Cline. He denied punching, starving, and hitting Cline with make-shift weapons.
In the interview, he tells Detective Dean Stormy Johnson was the one who violently beat and killed the victim.
He claimed he never touched Logan after he died despite stating he assisted in disposing of the body.
The trial will resume on Aug. 24, and testimony is set to begin at 9 a.m.
