The oral diaries of Earl Bramblett are set to be presented in what could be the final day of evidence from the prosecution today.
Yesterday testimony hit on speculation that the Hodges family was killed as part of a drug hit.
Now it turns out the chief suspect in the multiple murders was planting that notion in people's minds well before the family was killed.

A next door neighbor of the Hodges testified yesterday that HE heard the story from Bramblett a couple of months before the fire at the Hodges house.
Mark Price says Bramblett predicted the whole family would be murdered,
