Prosecution Continues Case Against Wells

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A Coast Guard investigator says James Wells had time to drive to a Coast Guard communications station, gun down two co-workers and head for home during a 34-minute period when a security camera recorded his truck along a Kodiak road.
Joe Sturgis testified Monday in the trial of Wells, who’s charged with murder in the deaths of Richard Belisle and James Hopkins on April 12, 2012.
Prosecutors are trying to account for Wells’ whereabouts that morning from 6:48 to 7:22 when his truck was recorded passing the Coast Guard base gate and returning.
Wells claims he stopped to check on a soft tire and drove home to change it.
Sturgis says driving at the speed limit gave Wells time to reach the communications station and return.
