Accident Expert Testifies in CommSta Murder Trial


An expert in recreating traffic accident scenarios says a compact sport utility vehicle could have been the vehicle seen driving past a Kodiak Island Coast Guard communications station where two men were murdered.
Prosecutors are attempting to connect a grainy security camera image of a blue vehicle to James Wells, who is charged with killing two co-workers on April 12, 2012.
Prosecutors say Wells drove his wife’s blue Honda CRV to the shop and shot Richard Belisle and James Hopkins.
Research engineer Angelo Toglia Jr. took measurements to construct a three-dimensional model of the site and compared models of vehicles that could have appeared in the video.
He says trucks and sedans could not have been the vehicle in the recording but a Honda CRV could have been.
