Arizona inmate taking the witness stand in the murder trial of a follow whiskey he charged in the killing -- as an awful story of an Oklahoma couple.
Tracy province -- testifying yesterday that it took three months to plan his 2010 escape would John McCloskey and an accomplice and just a few minutes to actually break free.
A province is also expected to testify about the day that McCloskey allegedly killed Linda and Gary Haas.
Because they wanted their pick up truck and trailer but.
How credible is a prisoner.
As a witness especially one trying to avoid the death penalty release we'll joins us now.
Fox News legal analyst Doug burns former federal prosecutor and criminal defense attorney conceive -- least you know -- It means the old saw is bad people.
-- -- That hateful murders Duncan sort with no answers are always gonna have nefarious witness right exactly -- -- know that they know that they could get that prosecution have to put on.
Who the -- was consortium at that -- these three guys were together they did this warming allegedly this horrible crime and don't forget McCloskey is caught.
Apprehended with one of the caps from one of the victims a male victim here I mean.
That evidence is so strong against him.
They knew they would like to have these co conspirators but they don't need them and I think the jury will find them to be incredibly.
Incredibly -- capital.
Well its interest thing -- a lot of times have witnesses who aren't that articulate and so forth and they lay out a story that's very consistent with what happens or jurors are all over that and they accepted the other distinction wanna -- quickly Greg is that this is not a jailhouse snitch.
In the conventional sense -- hostage in the conventional sense is.
I was having breakfast with the defendant he admitted to me he did the crime and there's no corroboration right.
But here the persons in prison but -- an accomplice collar crime threat and the story they tell will likely hang together.
-- -- at the old he confessed over Grohl this right yes I thought I don't want likely -- I go to now to the Aaron Hernandez case another twist in this murder raised new concerns that the former pro football star's inner circle.
Could help him get off Hernandez is accused of killing his friend -- -- in June.
No murder weapon were eyewitness.
Prosecutors may have to rely on.
Hernandez his nefarious friends to testify against him many of whom have.
Long long rap sheets and could be easily discredited.
So we get the same sort of situation here but -- What they don't have any other case they have in this case against Aaron Hernandez served surveillance.
Video right surveillance video doesn't lie so they can bring them but that will get that and that comes -- -- they put these other witnesses in a given authority to various and choir boys all that kind of stuff.
But they have that this surveillance tape and that's what jurors.
Leaning on the industrial park -- -- title clearly seen in the car right.
Three amounts three come out and Oden Lloyd is not -- -- that's exactly right by.
You know I don't forget -- got -- -- myself on the screen there's a plethora of evidence in this case you don't need.
-- -- good next to testify here it is 44 caliber gun casings match the -- murder weapon tied to the defendant.
Surveillance videotape as we mentioned text messages cell -- Messages implicated in the victim's sister implicates Hernandez DNA evidence placing her -- is at this.
It all comes down to corroboration and I'll never forget a lecture one time when I was a young prosecutor there was a hundred years ago a hundred years ago -- -- 1897.
Now but seriously the point is a high ranking DOJ official was laying out -- arguments we've been discussing.
You know you take the witness is where you find -- etc.
it's everybody said at the end of the day comes -- -- corroboration so your point Greg and you're right is if they're gonna have.
Trace items that come back to the defendant's -- however there is an issue apparently about one witness who is refusing to testify even though they're granting her immunity -- so we'll see how that plays out here.
Here's my question are right so before go win -- come out.
We don't know who pulled the trigger right does it mapped out but not a conspiracy because as long as they can prove the prosecution -- -- all three of them -- at each of them two year old player at each of them took a step or more stuff and it doesn't matter exactly doesn't make -- -- but certainly the finger of blame at each other right well -- do they always do that that's right in -- day in and to the -- like a murder for hire case even with somebody isn't -- it's like.
He did -- kill and so here it's like night pulled the trigger no he did your right -- on there.
Conspiratorial theory and aiding and abetting you know that your -- is so important -- the -- -- prosecution is now focusing on Hernandez as being the shooter because why else would you bring everybody else in the -- will take this we'll take this testimony for you unless you're gonna give them a better deal heard and it hit -- in the guy.
Heard one or the other guys' -- is Wallace.
Hernandez is paying Wallace is legal bills wouldn't you love the jurors to find out who they want to I don't think -- well now of course you're my goodness again.
I'll bet you -- murder weapon 45 caliber Glock how does that matter.
Don't miss something for isn't -- to.
I haven't obviously.
You don't need apply to everybody would exempt on the body say they don't -- a weapon everybody realized jurors realize that hate when you just.
Kill somebody get kind of want to try to get rid of that weapon not giving anybody himself there but -- kind of wanted to.
He's going down I think yes you all right.
