Just reading some of the stuff that was put on here re: the man and woman found dead near Lucasville. They have got suspects (or suppose to have gotten them); but what is happening. You never read anything in the paper or even hear anyone talking about this anymore. Have the three gone to trial yet or have they been set free.

Jury Hears Description Of Murder Scene
Frank Lewis
The jury hearing the murder case against Christina M. Williams, 37, of 1151 A Sherborne Road, Lucasville, spent most of Tuesday looking at photos of the physical layout of the murder scene and listening to testimony by investigators, while Williams sat pensively watching the case being presented.

Williams is charged in the deaths of Gary D. Markins Sr., 65 of 1151 Sherborne Road, and Nina Mannering, 30, of 4433 Blue Run Road, Lucasville, in January.

Shane Hanshaw of the Ohio Bureau of Identification and Investigation identified evidence offered by Scioto County Assistant Prosecutor Pat Apel, including two pry bars found at the scene. Hanshaw was asked by defense attorney Gene Meadows if footprints in the snow were measured, and Hanshaw said it was not possible since they had filled up with newly fallen snow.

Photos showed the body of a woman lying in a pool of blood in front of a sofa, and two sets of zip ties on the floor. Those zip ties were also made a part of the prosecutionís evidence.

Scioto County Sheriffís Detective Paul Blaine told the jury the crime scene was secured early and all care was taken to prevent any contamination of the scene by investigators, at one point following Hanshaw around the property walking in his footsteps.

A child in the residence at the time of the shooting

apparently called 911 on Jan. 8, to say that her mother and a friend had been shot.

Within days, several arrests were made, including Williams, and Gary Markins Jr., 38, also of Lucasville, and son of one of the victims, Gary Markins Sr. Markins Jr. has yet to stand trial in the case.

Williams is charged with four counts of aggravated murder, aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery, kidnapping, complicity to aggravated burglary, complicity to aggravated robbery, tampering with evidence and theft of a motor vehicle.

The third person arrested in the incident, Cecil W. Conley, was apprehended by Middletown Police. However, according to the Scioto County Prosecutorís office, he has not been charged in the crimes.

Apel and Assistant Prosecutor Julie Hutchinson are presenting the case for the state, in the trial which began on Monday.

<quoted text>You shouldn't speak about something you know nothing about. Read the news you idiot! They have already said he was robbed for LEGAL MEDICATION that was prescribed to him. You obviously knew nothing about the victim. He was a great guy, not a "drug dealer." His only crime was having things of value that some drugheads knew about. You obviously could never relate to this!
( LEGAL MEDICATION that was prescribed to him.) That is all drug users excuse !! Oh my back hurts... Go to pain clinic and get more leagal drugs !! lol I hope there all found face down... That is what is wroung with this county..

I know enough that she was found GUILTY of MURDERING 2 PEOPLE. Maybe she should have thought of their families before she helped MURDER them in front of a CHILD!!

go to h*ll

she did not MURDER ANY1 she should not have to pay for their mistakes. And I know personally that she wouldn't help anyone MURDER a person especailly infront of a CHILD! You don't know her, so stop judging her, u don't know her at all, she has little kids that read this and if u have any feelings u would watch what u say or u are not any better than the other two who did murder them poor people.

First of all u da man......that really is an excellent reply.You should be proud of yourself.

Secondly, Not Guilty, she was found GUILTY by a jury of her peers. She was guilty of the charge of murder whether you like it or not. You two want to say that I don't know her..........clearly you don't. At one point in her life she may have been a decent person......I can tell you for sure in January when she helped concoct this scheme.......she wasn't. People need to realize that when you do these types of things YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS. She cannot blame Gary Jr. or anyone else. She had a part in it and she needs to pay the price.

I do feel sorry for her kids, but they will at least get to see her......even if it is behind bars. They will get to hear her tell them she loves them. Unfortunately, Gary Sr.'s children and grandchildren will never have that luxury. So when you ask for me to watch what I say......maybe you should take your own advice. How do you think it made them feel to sit there and hear how their father was MURDERED??? Do you think that was a fun time for them???? Do you think they enjoy getting on Topix and have people defend her and say that he brought it on himself? If you really believe that anyone asks to be murdered you are idiots.

I just pray for Kim and Phillip that they have the same outcome with their brother......GUILTY! He needs to pay as well.
