ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Tuesday is day five of the Dustin Wallace trial, and the courtroom listened to a recorded interview of the defendant, made the morning Sahara Dwight was found dead.
One of Dustin Wallace's attorneys sat on either side of him Tuesday, as Roseburg Police Detective Dan Knott took the stand again.
Knott was the detective who interviewed Wallace shortly after five-year-old Sahara Dwight was found dead.
The judge watched a video recording of the interview, but the courtroom could only listen.
What they heard was Dustin Wallace changing his story several times. He first said that if he found out who killed the girl that he said was like a little sister to him, he would put them in the hospital.
As police further questioned him, Dustin said that a masked man entered the home with a gun and threatened to kill him if he told anyone.
Finally, Dustin Wallace agreed that he had sexual contact with Sahara Dwight and killed her, but that her death was an accident.
The defense says they will wrap up by tomorrow morning at the soonest.
Wallace waived his right to a jury trial and went on trial last Tuesday morning. He is being tried as an adult.
