ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY, N.Y. – Testimony in the Wayne Oxley case is beginning to focus less on crime scene investigations and more on interactions with Oxley before and after the murder.
One of the six witnesses who took the stand on Thursday was Bobbi Jo Gagnon. She was a friend of Oxley's during the summer of 2005. She testified to seeing Wayne Oxley on four separate occasions on August 29th, the day before the murder. And all four times, Gagnon says Oxley came onto her, tried to kiss her and spend the night, but Gagnon says she turned him down, making him upset. She also testified that Oxley seemed more intoxicated as the night went on.
Gagnon also revealed a time, two weeks before the murder, when Oxley told her he was going to go on a shooting rampage after his ex-wife took their sons to Massena.
Jamin Haggart also took the stand. He was a fellow inmate of Oxley while in the St. Lawrence County Jail. Haggart claims while behind bars, Oxley admitted to murdering Trickey because of disagreements over cocaine. But during cross-examination by the defense, Haggart's past and current criminal convictions were brought up, challenging his credibility.
“The DA promises people the world to say whatever they want, you know, dirt on me. They can only get low-lives like that. Scum of the earth, they got testifying,” said Oxley.
The jury will get a small vacation from the trial this weekend, not needing to report again until Monday afternoon.
