WARREN COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — On Friday, jury members listened to years of police calls involving a man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and lighting her house on fire in 2016.
Thirty-four-year-old Scottie Kincade is on trial for two murder charges and one count of arson in the death of Heather Smith.
As the trial moves into its fourth day, new information continues to come to light.
The Williamsport police department had been called to Heather Smith's house for domestic disputes for years.
Most did not end in arrest and not all of them were made by Heather Smith.
Both Kincade and Smith would call police accusing each other of abuse.
But one call did result in a charge of battery. That was in March of 2016 when police found Smith with a swollen lip and a red neck.
She said Kincade punched her.
The jury also learned more about when police chased Kincade into a cornfield the day of the fire.
Kincade was a suspect right away after a witness saw him leave Smith's house in her car shortly after.
Kincade ran from the scene of the cornfield crash but left behind a lighter and plastic gas container.
Sean Leshney with the Tippecanoe County High Tech Crime Unit is at the courthouse and will testify about the digital evidence against Kincade.
We hope to bring you that tonight on News 18 at Five and Six.
