Donthe Lucas trial resumes following two-week break caused by COVID

PUEBLO, Colo. (KRDO) -- The Donthe Lucas Trial resumed Tuesday following a two-week break brought on by a COVID-19 diagnosis in the courtroom.

Lucas is accused of killing his pregnant girlfriend Kelsie Schelling, 23. She disappeared in February of 2013 after visiting him from Denver.

According to the Pueblo Chieftain, CBI Agent Keven Torres gave more details about a woman named Jessica Martin.

In his testimony, Torres said Martin befriended Lucas in 2016 and would occasionally give information to CBI agents. Eventually, Martin began a romantic relationship with Lucas and stopped providing information.

However, Martin did tell CBI agents about a theory Lucas had about Schelling's disappearance.

According to Martin, Lucas dropped Schelling off at Parkview Hospital the day she went missing. At the hospital, Schelling met with a drug dealer, and Lucas believes a drug dealer was the one who killed her.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports Lucas allegedly told Martin that's why the hospital had no record of her.

    .
    There is apparently no evidence that such a drug dealer person even existed. So it sounds exactly like one of Trump’s baseless theories, with no more credibility than any of them.

    1. It all wraps back to Trump for you guys, even when he isn’t in power anymore. You are just absolutely infatuated with the guy. I would think actually running the country and providing the services you are suppose to would take priority, than settling old scores with a private citizen. If you hadn’t bogged down the country with face impeachment trial (the first one!), we might have avoided the worst of covid-19.

  2. Prayers to the family of the victim and the accused… It is not our place to judge as only God knows the truth but I believe justice well be served…
