continued "At 2:14 a.m., Nov. 15, 2004 the security system was disarmed or turned off by using the master code," Meyer said. "One way to do that is at the keypad in the kitchen."
At 5 a.m. a phone line was cut.
"The actual time the line was cut was around 4:54 a.m.," said Meyers. Defense Attorney Laurie Shanks noted the Porcos paid for a motion sensor with the home security system but could not use it because the family dog Barrister could set it off.
Shanks also noted one of the 128 entries in the security alarm shows the time and date of Dec. 30, 1899, indicated the system is not foolproof. She added there is no way to know if the security alarm was disarmed by someone inside or outside the house. Only four people had the master code to the security alarm system at 36 Brockley Drive prior to Nov. 15.
In earlier testimony, Navy Lt. Steven Carter testified that Johnathan Porco was accounted for at a class inside the Nuclear Power Training Command in Charleston, S.C. on Nov. 15, 2004.
"He sat directly behind me in class and was there at 6:45 a.m.," Stevens said.
