(GREAT BEND, Kan.) — The smell of gasoline and bleach, that's what Adam Longoria's live in girlfriend described in the hours after Alicia DeBolt went missing. Eva Brown spent most of Friday afternoon on the witness stand.
38-year-old Longoria is charged with the murder of 14-year-old DeBolt. Authorities say he killed her in commission of a sex crime and then set her body on fire in August 2010.
Brown says Longoria moved in with her in May of 2010. He threw her a birthday party in July of that year. She says there were teens at the party and she wasn't happy about it. She says until the party, Longoria shared a cell phone with her. Shortly after the party, she says he bought his own cell phone.
Brown says on the morning DeBolt went missing, Longoria drove her black Escape to work at the Venture asphalt company. She says Longoria called, asking her to call his boss to say there was a family emergency so he could get out of work. She says the two then made plans to go bowling.
Brown says they went out for a little while and had a few drinks. She says they went home and then Longoria went back out. She says he was wearing white Nike Air Jordans with laces and a Nike shirt.
