Russell’s attorney, John Stewart, asked Chief Alexander about the anonymous letter from 2009.
Also testifying Thursday was Rodney Phillips, and one of the first questions asked of him by Commonwealth’s Attorney GL Ovey was about his involvement in Chantel Humphries’ death.
Kentucky State Police Detective Michelle Kent, who was lead investigator in the case, took the stand Thursday morning and testified about her role as well as the work she’s done in the case since 2003.
She also testified that she was not aware of the anonymous letter sent to Lieutenant Brent White in December 2009.
Defense attorney, John Stewart questioned Kent about a receipt from White's Automotive, which places Chantel at the repair shop the day of her disappearance.
The timeline was handwritten by Sergeant Eric Walker and then typed by Kent. The detective also testified that she did not agree with Walker when he wanted to arrested Russell in 2002 and that she has had disagreements with new lead detective Steve Silfees.
