Testimony continued Tuesday afternoon in 30th District Court in the case against Justin Sizemore, accused of murdering Christopher Hoffpauir on June 14, 2010 on Garwood Busby Road near the Rapides Parish line.
On Tuesday, jurors heard testimony from James Stephens, Raylynn Bear, Jody Thibeaux, Glenda Van Langendonck, and Shayna LeBlanc as well as additional testimony from Ray Ortiz, detective with the Vernon Parish Sheriff's Office.
Defense attorney Tony Tillman also objected to the state's use of a police report prepared by Ortiz in January after he spoke to Thibeaux and LeBlanc, friends of Kristyn Hoffpauir. Thibeaux said that he told Ortiz in the report that his ex-wife, who was related to Hoffpauir, told him that at one point, she and Kristyn Hoffpauir's mother found a gun in her room and that at one point, she had threatened to kill her mother.
Thibeaux indicated that he was not present when the incidents in question allegedly happened.
Stephens, a private investigator, was contacted by Tillman to locate LeBlanc, with whom Kristyn Hoffpauir allegedly left her son, Logan, on the night of the murder. Stephens also located and spoke to Thibeaux about his relationship with Kristyn Hoffpauir.
LeBlanc told attorneys Tuesday that Kristyn Hoffpauir had come to her home on June 13, 2010, and asked her to take her son and her cell phone because she was "going to get someone to beat up Chris [Hoffpauir]." She also indicated to Tillman that Kristyn Hoffpauir had told her that Christopher Hoffpauir had attempted to run her off the road earlier that day.
Bear, who is Sizemore's sister, testified that Sizemore and Kristyn Hoffpauir traveled to Austin with her on the weekend of June 12 to attend a bike rally. On the way back, she indicated that Kristyn Hoffpauir said multiple times that "she was going to be home that night."
Van Langendonck, who is Jesse Robert Sizemore's sister, testified that she had entered the Sizemore residence Monday morning and noticed that the 2003 Mitsubishi Spyde Eclipse, which was allegedly driven during the murder, parked outside Jesse Robert Sizemore's shop as well as the red Chevrolet pickup which Bear indicated had been driven to Austin and back for the bike rally. She also testified that she and Jesse Robert Sizemore left at approximately 8:30 to run errands, and when they returned, the truck was not at the house, but that the Mitsubishi was still parked outside.
Van Langendonck indicated that she did not see Sizemore when she entered the Sizemore residence that morning.
Attorneys for both sides indicated that they expected testimony to conclude this morning. Court will resume at 9 a.m.
