Arnelle is correct that it would have been impossible for her to have unlocked the back door with a key. Q.-- that you can open with a key from the outside?
Now, describe to the jury what happened after you heard the knock on the door? Yes that is exactly what Arnelle had to do and did do, when she entered her father's house. She turned the alarm off when she entered the house. Q AND AFTER ARNELLE ASKED YOU THAT QUESTION, WHAT HAPPENED NEXT? A WE WENT IN THERE TO SEE IF A MAID NAMED GIGI WAS IN THE RESIDENCE. A BECAUSE WE HAD BEEN TOLD OUTSIDE THE RESIDENCE BEFORE WE EVER ENTERED IT THAT THERE WAS A FULL-TIME MAID THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE LIVING ON THE PREMISES AND ARNELLE HAD MADE REFERENCE TO GIGI WHEN WE WENT OUTSIDE THE RESIDENCE BEFORE EVER ENTERING. A SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT, "ISN'T GIGI IN THE HOUSE? A WE HAD BEEN TOLD BY THE WESTEC PEOPLE THAT SHE WAS A FULL -- LIVE-IN MAID, FULL-TIME, AND ARNELLE HAD ALSO BROUGHT HER NAME UP, SO WE THOUGHT IF WE COULD FIND HER, SHE MAY KNOW WHERE MR. A THERE WAS NOBODY INSIDE THE ROOM AND THE BED WAS COMPLETELY MADE AND THE ROOM WAS WELL ORGANIZED AND IT DIDN'T APPEAR THAT ANYBODY HAD BEEN IN THERE RECENTLY. SHE SEEMED TO ME TO BE CONCERNED BECAUSE OF OUR PRESENCE.
