Prosecution Continues Case Against Wells

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A Coast Guard investigator says James Wells had time to drive to a Coast Guard communications station, gun down two co-workers and head for home during a 34-minute period when a security camera recorded his truck along a Kodiak road.
Joe Sturgis testified Monday in the trial of Wells, who’s charged with murder in the deaths of Richard Belisle (BEL’-eye-ul) and James Hopkins on April 12, 2012.
Prosecutors are trying to account for Wells’ whereabouts that morning from 6:48 to 7:22 when his truck was recorded passing the Coast Guard base gate and returning.
Wells claims he stopped to check on a soft tire and drove home to change it.
Sturgis says driving at the speed limit gave Wells time to reach the communications station and return.
