WITNESS SAYS HE WAS SCARED ALEXIUS FOSTER WOULD KILL HIM
Wednesday was the first full day of testimony in the Alexius Foster capital murder trial.
It was an eventful day of testimony. The jury heard from at least four witnesses, including a former employee of the victim who said he feared the defendant might kill him.
Foster is charged with capital murder in the stabbing death of his uncle, George Foster.
Wednesday, a former employee of Foster’s admitted that he lied to police about seeing Alexius Foster leaving the scene of the crime because he was afraid that “(Alexius Foster) might kill me, too.”
Some experts on the case said they think the outcome could hinge on the testimony of that witness, who had a difficult time addressing the court and was allegedly reluctant to testify in the first place.
Several witnesses also had trouble recalling specific dates in the crime that happened more than two years ago.
The trial is expected to last two weeks, and continues today at the Tuscaloosa County Courthouse.
