Defense Not Allowed to Call Tattooed Inmate in CommSta Trial
Friday, 18 April 2014

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A federal judge says defense attorneys in the Kodiak Coast Guard CommSta murder trial can't call a witness currently in custody on another case, though he may allow it in the future.
    Judge Ralph Beistline ruled today (Friday) that 38-year-old Jason Barnum didn't have a sufficient connection to the case to testify in the trial of 62-year-old James Wells now underway in Anchorage.
    Barnum acknowledged being in Kodiak at the time but says he didn't know the slain men.
    In a separate case, Barnum is charged with attempting to kill an Anchorage police officer at a hotel in September 2012.
    Barnum is heavily tattooed, including on his eyeball, and federal prosecutor Karen Loeffler says there's no reason to call him as a witness other than to frighten the jury.
    Wells is charged with murder in the deaths of co-workers Richard Belisle and James Hopkins on April. 12, 2012, at the Coast Guard Base Kodiak Communications Station.

Widow Testifies in CommSta Murder Trial
Thursday, 17 April 2014

 

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP)

           The wife of a Coast Guardsman shot to death two years ago at a Kodiak communications station says she didn't shoot her husband and his co-worker.
           Deborah Hopkins was called as a defense witness Thursday in the trial of James Wells, who's charged with first-degree murder in the death of Petty Officer First Class James Hopkins and civilian employee Richard Belisle.
            Defense attorneys contend investigators immediately focused in on Wells and ignored other possible suspects.
            Defense attorney Peter Offenbecher questioned Deborah Hopkins about an affair her husband had, their finances, her familiarity with the shop were her husband was murdered and guns in their home.
            During cross-examination, special assistant U.S. Attorney Kathleen Duigan directly asked Deborah Hopkins if she had murdered her husband. Hopkins said she had not.

Witness Testifies on Local Cars in CommSta Murder Trial
Thursday, 17 April 2014

 

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP)

           A defense witness in the trial of the man charged with killing two co-workers at a Kodiak Coast Guard station says there are plenty of other cars on the island that fit the dimensions of a vehicle recorded near the murder scene.
           Federal defender investigator Deatrich Sheffield says 263 blue vehicles registered on the island fit the same dimensions and that doesn't count Coast Guardsmen cars registered elsewhere.
           Sheffield testified Thursday in the trial of electronics technician James Wells, who's charged with killing Richard Belisle and James Hopkins shortly after 7 a.m. on April 12, 2012.
           Prosecutors say Wells used his wife's blue sport utility vehicle to drive to the scene.
           A security camera recorded a blue vehicle driving past the shop at 7:09 a.m. and returning five minutes later.
