It was the second day of testimony in the quadruple murder trial of Omar Kalmio in northwest District Court in Minot today.
Nearly a dozen witnesses have taken the stand to testify so far.
Shaun Sipma has the latest developments from the courtroom.
Prosecution called on Terri Zephier, Sabrina's sister, to testify this morning on the relationship between Omar and Sabrina.
Assistant State's Attorney Kelly Dillon asked Terri about a Facebook message between Sabrina and Terri in December 2010, as Omar and Sabrina's relationship was ending.
(Terri Zephier, Sabrina's Sister) "Terri, I need you to come and get me. Please don't call because if Omar knows you're calling he'll get mad and start hitting me again. My face is already (expletive) up. Come up her to the door. I need you my face is (expletive) up and my body. Please ASAP."
Terri also testified about the few occasions where Kalmio visited her mother's trailer and his fear of the larger dog, that was shot the night of the murders.
The defense also questioned Terri about her mother, Jolene and Jeremy Longie's drug use.
(Kelly Dillon, Ward County Assistant State's Attorney) "What type of drugs did she ask you to get?"
(Terri Zephier, Sabrina's Sister) "Pills & Marijuana"
The defense questioned Terri if Jolene or Jeremy had any enemies who wanted to harm them.
She said none that she knew of.
Bureau of Criminal Investigation Special Agent Dale Maixner was next to testify.
Assistant State's Attorney Kelly Dillon questioned Maixner about how the murders were connected.
(Kelly Dillon, Wad County Assistant State's Attorney) "Did you develop any suspects?"
(Dale Maixner, BCI Special Agent) "Yes."
(Kelly Dillon, Wad County Assistant State's Attorney) "Who was that?"
(Dale Maixner, BCI Special Agent) "Mr. Kalmio."
Maixner testified that more than 200 interviews were conducted and Kalmio was the only common denominator between Sabrina, Dillon & Jolene Zephier and Jeremy Longie
In cross examination Terry Rosenquist questioned Maixner about any direct evidence linking Kalmio to the crime scene.
(Dale Maixner, BCI Special Agent) "We had no physical evidence."
Rosenquist also inquired about tests that were conducted on Kalmio's clothes for evidence from the crime scene and again nothing was found.
(Terry Rosenquist, Defense Attorney) "Were you made aware of any purchases of ammunition that were made by Mr. Kalmio.
(Dale Maixner, BCI Special Agent) "To my knowledge there were no purchase of ammunition by Mr. Kalmio."
(Terry Rosenquist, Defense Attorney) "During the course of the investigation were you made aware of any ownership of a firearm by Mr. Kalmio?"
(Dale Maixner, BCI Special Agent) "Ownership?
(Terry Rosenquist, Defense Attorney) "Ownership.
(Dale Maixner, BCI Special Agent) "I would have to say no."
Later in the afternoon the State Forensic Examiner that performed an autopsy on the Zephier's and Longie was called to testify.
Again graphic photos were shown as evidence, one photo showing the gunpowder burns on Sabrina's face depicting that she was shot at very close range.
(William Massello, State Forensic Examiner) Between six inches and about two feet.
The state argued the trajectory of the wounds and the close proximity of the gunman to the victims were the evidence linking the suspect Omar Kalmio to the shootings.
Court recessed for day as testimony is scheduled to continue Wednesday at the Ward County Courthouse.
