Jurors hear Roe’s pleading messages to victim

LEXINGTON, Ky. — Jurors in Marty Roe’s murder trial on Thursday heard more voice messages that Roe left for Dr. Martha Post, the Lexington dermatologist he is accused of killing.

Lexington police detective Bill Brislin, the lead investigator in the case, played the messages, which remain on Post’s iPhone. The messages were left in the weeks before Post was attacked.

No testimony was scheduled for today and the prosecution is expected to wrap up its case Monday.

Logan County (Ohio) Sheriff’s Detective Phil Bailey is scheduled to testify.

He found a handgun and ammunition allegedly used in the slaying stashed behind the battery of Roe’s van after the suspect was apprehended Sept. 7, 2011, at Brother’s Bar, 11977 N. State Route 235, Lakeview, Ohio.
