During his testimony he admited to
running from the crime scene and trying
to destroy or hide the murder weapon.

RACHEL

The defense is really questioning
these inmates that have come forward.

Defense Attorney Jimmy Turk says
he thinks these people are just
latching on to Linkous, making up
stories hoping to get a lesser sentence
themselves.

Of course we'll see how this all
plays out in court.
