Even before they started picking a jury today, the Commonwealth's Attorney advanced a piece of evidence that he says "only the killer would know."
(----------------)
VO-NAT


One of several pre-trial motions was about a statement attributed to Bramblett in a newspaper interview right after he was arrested in South Carolina last year.
Though he'd just been arraigned on eight charges involving the arson and murder of the Hodges family in Vinton, Bramblett told the reporter he wasn't convinced they were dead.
"I knew something happened to Teresa," he said, because a relative told him gasoline had been sprinkled around her body."
Commonwealth's Attorney Skip Burkart says HE didn't know that. He says it took the state crime lab to determine that there was gasoline on and around Teresa Hodges' body and ONLY hers.
