Adam Longoria, the man accused of killing 14-year-old Alicia Debolt is in Barton County District Court today for a preliminary hearing, to see if there is enough evidence to take him to trial for charges of attempted rape and indecent liberties with a child, along with the original charge of capital murder.
Longoria’s ex-girlfriend Eva Brown testified to Longoria’s whereabouts on the night of August 21st, 2010, when DeBolt went missing.
She said that Longoria had left the house in her black Ford Escape at around 11pm and returned fifteen minutes later and changed clothes that were stained, and later asked her to dispose of the clothes. He left the house again and returned shortly after 12:30am.
She also said she smelled gasoline in the vehicle the next morning.
DeBolt’s neighbor Tiffany Neely testified to seeing a dark SUV driving suspiciously slow through their neighborhood while she was at a Barbeque across the street from DeBolt’s home.
She said the vehicle pulled up to DeBolt’s house, which DeBolt entered at around 11pm. Hugo Hernandez testified that Longoria asked him to tell law enforcement that Longoria was at Willy J’s the night of August 21st, when Hernandez said he didn’t see Longoria that night.
Arnofo Aviles said he saw Longoria and DeBolt at Eva Brown’s birthday party on July 17. He said he overheard Longoria making comments about DeBolt indicating that Longoria wanted to have sex with DeBolt.
And Great Bend Police Detective Denton Doze testified that he saw surveillance video of Longoria pumping gas into a small container at Love’s just after midnight on August 22nd.
