Hard to say at this time. Everyone seems tired. It's been a long afternoon.
Pros is establishing that nobody coerced Tasha into testifying.
Nothing has been said, but I assume the trial will be back tomorrow.
It's hard to say how long it will go, but it could go to next Friday.
Def would like Tasha available by phone. Pros would like to keep her under subpoena for remainder of trial. She is excused for the day.
Brian Bjelland is called.
Brian was a taxi driver on day Albaugh was killed.
He is a taxi driver for Taxi9000.
Pros presents him with the log he kept on the night of Albaugh's death.
Correction - he is no longer driving for Taxi9000.
Logs record addresses of pick up and number of people picked up and time of pick up.
Pros: Do you remember being dispatched to a street ( I didn't catch which one) in Lincoln.
Pros: Do you remember anything about the person you picked up?
Brian: The dispatcher called me and told me her location had changed because she was trying to get away from a certain house. She seemed very happy to see me and excited to leave.
He took her to Sports Page bar
Says it was definitely between 7:15 and 8 pm
Elgaen has know Tasha since high school
Doesn't keep in regular contact with Tasha
She met up with Tasha at Sports Page on night Albaugh was killed. She says it was maybe about 9:30pm
She says she thinks Tasha was there before she got there. She says Tasha told her she was at a house where someone got stabbed and she was mad that she forgot her keys.
She mostly talked to Patrina's sister, Montel. Most of what Patrina's hear, she actually overheard from her sister's conversation.
Defense will cross examine
Who was at the table with you at Sports Page?
Says it was her, her sister, someone named Fisher
Patrina was sober driver. Drove these people over to Capt Freddy's. Then picked them up and dropped Tasha off at an apartment building.
Def: Is Tasha a loud person?
Patrina: yes. I would say she's a hyper person.
She indicated she never saw blood. It was unclear from her testimony how much she knew about Randy's condition. She said he was holding his chest.
Montel says she and Tasha used to be good friends. They haven't been such good friends recently.
Pros: Did Tasha seem excited at the Sports Page.
Montel: Yes. More than usual.
Pros: did she tell you what shed witnessed earlier?
Montel: She said was at a house and she came out of the bathroom and a guy was there witha knife with blood on it.
Pros: Did anyone at the bar call 911 after hearing this story?
