(LAS VEGAS, KXNT, ASSOICATED PRESS)–Jason Griffith, accused of murder in the dismemberment killing of his girlfriend Deborah Flores Narvaez in late 2010, has spent a third day on the witness stand at his trial, this time facing cross-examination from aggressive prosecutors.
The former Cirque performer is accused of strangling Flores Narvaez, a dancer at the Luxor, and place body parts in a cement bin. Griffith’s former roommate testified this week he assisted Griffith in putting the body in concrete.
Griffith’s defense team told the jury Friday about a note victim Narvaez once left on his parked car, which read “:I’ll kill you”
The defense has portrayed Narvaez as the aggressor in what was described as a ‘fatal attraction’ relationship. Griffith and defense witnesses have described the deceased as a ‘scary, clingy stalker’.
Prosecutors peppered Griffith with questions, asking him if he blamed Las Vegas police for everything that happened and if he took ownership of his actions. He replied that he did, but that police ignored, even ridiculed his earlier alerts that his girlfriend was threatening.
Friday marked the seventh day of the trial in District Court at the Regional Justice Center in Las Vegas. Griffith faces life in prison if convicted.
