Montel: No. She was being obnoxious. I honestly thought she was making it up.
Montel says she called police after finding out that the story had been on the news.
Laurel Schlittenhart is called
We were wondering that, too.
They never ally addressed it.
Laure/her husbandl have been a friends with Unruh for years. Her husband worked for Unruh's dad. She was staying in Unruh's basement on night Albaugh was killed.
She and her husband were just getting settled into town at the time.
They're Setting up the floor plan again.
Pros is going through layout of house again.
The basement was insulated but not sheetrocked. She had a tv, bed, entertainment center.
We'll wait until she testifies to answer this
She came home from work (KFC) with a box of chicken and left it on counter for Unruh and daughter. She then turned on a movie.
Says it was not common for her to go upstairs except to use the bathroom.
She heard them pull into the driveway that night.
Saw Unruh and two other people getting out of vehicle. Ran into Albaugh when she was upstairs to use bathroom and recognized him as someone she'd seen before.
Says John's daughter was upstairs when the three people came home.
Says the movie was playing when they got home.
Remember seeing the snowmobile in front yard.
Says they were outside messing with snowmobile for 20-30 mins.
Says she heard the three upstairs.
Laurel: They were loud so I just kind of turned the tv up.
At some point while she was watching tv, Unruh's daughter came downstairs crying. She said there was a lot of blood upstairs and that her dad was calling the police.
Laurel: I asked her what was going on and she was just crying hysterically.
She kept daughter downstairs with her.
At some point she heard the door to outside shut and saw a woman walking away through the basement window.
Pros: Would you say you were blaring the tv?
No, Tasha didn't know them before.
Laurel: I saw police drive up. I told John's daughter to stay put and I went up stairs.
Says she ran into cop and decided to go downstairs to stay out of the way.
John was talking to the police
Laurel: I heard the words, "...or I'll taze you."
She took Unruh's daughter outside at this point.
That was what Laurel testified to.
Yes. She said she asked if her dad was taking care of it and the girl said he was. So she decided to stay with daughter.
I have to correct that. Laural said Tasha left before Unruh's daughter came down.
Apologies. Jenny is correct about that.
