CROSS EXAMINATION BY MR. HOLOHAN CONTINUES
Q. And you said afterwards that — that Mr. Bomber was — was — was very upset after he stabbed Mr. Worrell, because he kept saying that he was going to lose his kids and go to jail. Right?
Q. You then — You then went and stayed with the Hartwell’s?
Q. And then Officer — Detective Walters went and talked to you again on June 6th at the Hartwell’s. Correct?
Q. And that’s the first time that you mentioned anything about Mr. Worrell putting David in a headlock? Correct?
Q. When did you mention that?
A. I had written a handwritten statement to one of the other Detectives that — I do not recall his name. But, I was sitting in the van and the neighbor, Ted, was there inside the van with me. After I went up to the top of the hill and talked with him, and he convinced me that you know it’s — Whatever happened, you need to be able to tell the truth. You need to stop lying. I understand that you’re scared to go back and tell the truth. But, I will walk down there and help you.
Q. Was that the time when you — when you said, I know I lied in the beginning but I was trying to protect him?
A. To the Detective in the van that I talked to when I handwritten my statement?
Q. So then, you admitted that you lied at that time? And you admitted that you were lying to protect Mr. Bomber?
A. Only because I thought he would be in trouble if I was — because from his leaving and not knowing what to say where I had already lied.
Q. And you also told Detective Walters in that June 6th statement that actually, Mr. Worrell was apologizing after he was stabbed?
A. Yes, he was.
Q. And you actually used the word that he apogized saying, I’m sorry I antagonized. So, he has just been stabbed in the heart and that’s what he is says?
A. Yeah. He did say that. He said, I’m sorry that I antagonized you. Like, he was crying as he was saying it.
Q. After being stabbed in the heart?
A. Yes, he did. He said, I’m sorry for putting you in the headlock.
Q. And in that June 6th statement to Detective Walters, didn’t you tell Detective Walters that — that when you and Mr. Bomber were having a conversation after — when Mr. Worrell was lying in the kitchen floor bleeding, about calling 9 – 1 – 1 that Mr. Bomber told you that he couldn’t be there when you called 9 – 1 – 1?
A. He said, I don’t think — He said, I don’t know if I can be there when you call 9 – 1 – 1.
Q. And after that he left?
A. I — Because I told him to leave because he was crying and he wasn’t helping me or — You know, it was — it was distracting me from helping Michael and him helping Michael by him being all upset and hurting. And I knew that I was able to get him away from me, I was able to call 9 – 1 – 1. No matter what I had said to 9 – 1 – 1. Yes, I did lie, but the — in spite of the fact it did get 9 – 1 – 1 there and it did get him to the hospital, and it did help at some point.
Q. Where were you and Mr. Bomber having this conversation about whether he should stay while Mr. Worrell was laying on the floor bleeding?
A. Mr. Worrell was right there with us.
Q. So, you were standing over him having this conversation?
A. No. No.
Q. So, where were you?
A. We were right at the entrance at the kitchen door.
Q. So, you two are standing there debating about whether to call 9 – 1 – 1, and he is lying on the floor right there in the kitchen bleeding?
A. Not debating about whether or not to call . There was —
Q. That’s when David told you that you couldn’t be there, right?
A. He said that he couldn’t be there.
Q. So, did you agree to wait until he left to call 9 – 1 – 1?
Q. So you called while he was still there?
A. I called while I was handing him the keys.
Q. Is that the first call, that got disconnected?
A. No. The first call that got disconnected was when Mr. Worrell was laying in the kitchen floor, and I dropped my phone.
Q. You dropped the phone?
A. I dropped my phone.
Q. So, what happened in between you dropping the phone and the second call, besides you handing Mr. Bombed the keys to drive away?
A. I continued to make the call.
Q. So, you picked it up, I guess?
A. No, I dropped the phone. The phone call ended. And I called 9 – 1 – 1 back and I got up and when — We was standing at the entrance of the kitchen door, and he said that I can’t be here because he — And I told him, well you’re not helping me anyway, so leave. As I was handing him my keys, I was dialing 9 – 1 – 1 again.
Q. Whose idea was it to flip the cushion over that had Mr. Worrell’s blood all over it?
A. It was mine.
Q. Why did you do that?
A. Because. I didn’t know what to say. And I didn’t do that until after I had gotten off the phone with 9 – 1 – 1 as the ambulance, police, and everything was arriving there and before I opened the door.
Q. Well, there’s — there was blood on the floor — on the carpet, right?
