PULASKI COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — The trial for a Pulaski County man charged with killing someone and burning his body in a car continues on Wednesday.
Witnesses spotted the burning car off Rush Branch Road in Somerset back in 2018 and firefighters found the body of Jorge Martinez, 38, inside.
Somerset police said that tips led them to Humberto Mesa-Vasquez, 34, who was wearing stained clothing.
On Tuesday, both sides argued if the stains on his clothes were actually blood or not.
Testimony is scheduled to start on Wednesday.
