The second week of testimony in a Grant County murder trial begins today with the prosecution continuing to build its case against accused killer James Griffith.
The former Marion man is accused in the beating and stabbing death of 81-year old Duwayne Lindsey in July of 2012. Griffith was a former handyman for Lindsey and is accused of killing Lindsey in his South Adams Street home during a robbery. The prosecution claims Griffith and his girlfriend...Lacy Bradley of Celina, Ohio...killed Lindsey and then went to Kentucky where they were eventually arrested on un-related charges, but then were linked to Lindsey’s murder.
Griffith is acting as his own attorney in the trial as it goes into its second week in Grant County Superior Court One. Lacy Bradley faces similar charges, but will be tried separately at a later date.
