REDIRECT EXAMINATION BY MR. INGE
Q. Ms. Proffitt, how long had you lived in this apartment before June 5th, 2010?
Q. Excuse me?
A. Eight (8) to ten (10) months.
Q. As your home?
Q. Do you know exactly where you can see, what you can see wherever you are standing from in there?
Q. Okay. Now, I mean, is there anything about the questions that you were asked by the Commonwealth about what you could or could not see in your own home that you’ve lived in for eight (8) to ten (10) months that you’d want to change?
A. I don’t — I don’t —
Q. I mean, Mr. Holohan ever been a guest in your home?
Q. Okay. What you saw the way your home was, is the way it is?
Q. Okay. And nobody is going to tell you that it’s different?
Q. Okay. Now, you gave a bunch of statements. Correct?
A. Yes, I did.
Q. The very first one was the one that you told the big lie about, about the suicide?
Q. Okay. That’s — That’s a tape recorded statement that you gave to Detective Walters?
Q. Okay. Now — And that statement is, oh, forty-four (44) pages long?
A. Are you talking about the ones at my interview?
Q. The first one.
A. Excuse me.
Q. The first tape recorded statement. The one that you told the big lie about — about committing suicide?
Q. Okay. Now, was the second statement the handwritten statement or was it another tape recorded statement?
A. Tape recorded.
Q. Okay. And that second statement is seventy-two (72) pages long?
Q. All right. All right, hold on here for a second here, Ms. Proffitt. I’ve got my statements — Okay. Here it is. The second tape recorded statement that you gave to Detective Walters was ten (10) pages long? Does that sound right to you?
A. You said, seventy-two (72) for the first time. But. —
Q. Well, I was mistaken.
Q. Okay. The second one was ten (10) pages long.
Q. And you told Detective Walters that Mr. Worrell attacked Mr. Bomber.
A. If I said it in that statement, I do not recall. But, you can refresh my memory by showing me.
Q. Sure. Do you want to look at it?
Q. Look at page 4. Does that refresh your recollection?
A. I said —
Q. Does —
THE COURT: You are going to have to speak up ma’am.
Q. Does reading that refresh your recollection?
A. Can you repeat the question?
Q. Does reading that refresh your recollection? Yes or no? I don’t care what your answer is.
Q. Okay. Now, did you tell Detective Walters during the second tape recorded statement that Mr. Worrell had tried to choke Mr. Bomber?
A. Had tried?
Q. Well, that he choked him?
Q. Okay. And then when you had — There was a handwritten statement that followed later on?
Q. Okay. And in that handwritten statement you told Detective Walters or maybe another Roanoke County Police Officer that Mr. Worrell had choked Mr. Bomber?
Q. And then finally — Well not finally. Then we have the seventy-two (72) page tape recorded statement that came the next day on June 6th at the Monterey Golf Course. Remember that one?
Q. And you told Detective Walters again that Mr. Worrell tried to choke Mr. Bomber before he got stabbed?
Q. And then finally, a statement got taken from you about — Oh, about six (6) weeks ago, June 30th, 2011 and you again told Detective Walters that Mr. Worrell had tried to choke Mr. Bomber before he got stabbed?
Q. And in fact the only time that you ever told Detective Walters that it was a suicide was the first time?
Q. Okay. Now, this whole thing that, you know, one statement is seventy-two (72) pages long. The one six (6) weeks ago is twelve (12) pages long, the second tape recorded one was ten (10) pages long, the first tape recorded one was forty-four (44) pages long. You’ve looked at those except for the one six (6) weeks ago? Correct?
Q. You’ve actually seen copies of those from time to time since June 5th, 2010.
Q. Okay. Are they exact word for word?
Q. Okay. But, now you absolutely, positively lied in the very first one about the suicide?
A. Yes, I did.
Q. But, as far as the other things, you know, the fact that they’re different — things are different. Did you lie about them?
Q. Or was that just the result of your recollection?
A. I’m sorry, can you repeat the question?
Q. Is it the result of recollection or the way that you were being questioned?
Q. Okay. Now, you said that you had kind of an issue about being told what to do. Remember that?
Q. Okay. That people can tell you what to do —
THE COURT: You have her on redirect, so this has to be something that came out in cross. Does that not —
MR. INGE: You’re right, Your Honor. I apologize. I’ll withdraw that question.
(Redirect examination of Ms. Proffitt by Mr. Inge continues.)
THE COURT: Do you have any other questions?
MR. INGE: I have — I’m through.
THE COURT: After all of that, do either of you want to put those statements in evidence?
MR. HOLOHAN: No, Your Honor.
MR. INGE: No, Your Honor.
THE COURT: Thank you ma’am. You can step down.
