TROY, N.Y. -- Details about that bloody palm print and conversations police had with Michael Mosely after the deaths of Arica Schneider and Samuel Holley highlighted of day seven of Mosley's murder trial.
A lead investigator testified a bloody palm print found at the murder scene matched Mosley's.
The jury also heard recordings made by investigators as they interrogated Mosley before he knew he was a suspect in the murders. Investigators say the conversations took place over a four month period last spring.
On the tapes, Mosley said he knew the victims, but that he didn't know about their deaths until a week later. But that wasn't true.
Defense attorney Terry Kindlon explained Mosley found the bodies, but that he didn't want to tell police. Kindlon also said Samuel Holley had a lot of enemies that could have wanted him dead.
"What they are doing is throwing stuff against the wall and a lot of the stuff is missing the wall. And it sure as hell ain't sticking," Kindlon said.
"I do believe he did it to her. I think the evidence, as we go, will prove a lot and show a lot. We still have a lot to show," said Paul Schneider, Arica's father.
The jury will hear a total of seven hours of taped conversations between police and Mosley. They are due back in court in Wednesday morning.
