Murder suspect Roe denied knowing about doctor's death, Lexington detective says


Suspect Marty Roe denied knowing anything about Dr. Martha Post's slaying during an interview after his arrest in 2011 in Ohio, Lexington police detective Chris Schoonover testified Monday during Roe's trial.

Schoonover said Roe's initial reaction to news that the Lexington dermatologist was dead was "She's what? Oh, my God. Oh, man."

But Schoonover also testified that Roe referred to Post in the past tense before learning she was dead.
