Testimony in Lexington murder trial continues


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The lead investigator took the stand Thursday in the Lexington murder trial of Marty Roe.

The trial has broken for the weekend. Over the past few days, the court has heard lots of testimony from the family of Dr. Martha Post, police investigators and today the family of Marty Roe.

The third day of the trial began with voicemails.

"I dont' want anybody else. I just want you. Never ask me not to call you ever again because that is not gonna happen."

Lots of voicemails, "I wanna see you. If you don't come up, I'm gonna come on down there. I'll come right on in."

Prosecutors say these are the messages Marty Roe left on Dr. Martha Post's cell phone after he was dismissed from her practice and told to stay away.

"I know you don't want me to call you (expletive). I'm going to the rest of my life I guess."

Thursday afternoon, Roe's two daughters took the stand. They say they hadn't seen their father regularly for a long time, but he showed up in the days just before the murder.

Kathy Rawlings is one of Roe's daughters. She says, "He had told me that he wanted to put his van and an RV in my name and he couldn't do it without my signature and I told him I did not want it."

The trial has wrapped up for the day and circuit court will be tied up with other matters Friday, so the trial will reconvene at nine Monday morning.
