The Prosecution of Newland murder suspect Gloria
Hughes Estes continues today.
Yesterday the jury heard testimony from State
Bureau of Investigations representatives as well as Estes’ fellow inmates.
While Estes did not confess to the 2005 murder of Samuel Joe Roberson, she did
make suspicious statements to fellow prisoners, courtroom witnesses told
Aisling Broadcasting. Opening statements began Thursday. Defense attorney Gary
Triggs sought and got a change of venue last year. As a result, the trial is
going on in Mitchell County.
