GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) _ Prosecutors have begun showing jurors
text messages outlining a Kansas man's obsession with a slain
cheerleader whose badly burned body was found at the asphalt plant
where he worked.
The evidence came during the fifth day of testimony in the
capital murder trial of 38-year-old Adam Longoria. The Great Bend
man is accused in the August 2010 death of 14-year-old Alicia
Analyst Stephanie Smith of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation on
Wednesday discussed the texts as they were projected on a screen in
the courtroom. The texting began the morning after Longoria met the
girl at a party.
In them, Longoria calls the teen ``miss shy'' and ``hot stuff.''
When she asks his age, the then 36-year-old man told her he was 25.
