LEXINGTON, Ky. — Dr. Robert Truitt, widower of slain Lexington dermatologist Martha Post, testified Wednesday in court here that he had nothing to do with her death.
The declaration came on the second day of testimony in the trial of Marty Roe, who is accused of murder in the Sept. 1, 2011, shooting death of Post. During opening statements Tuesday, defense attorney Robert Friedman told the jury that Truitt had the most to gain from Post’s death.
On Wednesday, Commonwealth’s Attorney Ray Larson asked Truitt: “Did you have anything to do with the murder of your wife?”
“No, I most certainly did not,” Truitt said.
