ALFRED — The murder trial of Jason Twardus entered its third day this morning at York County Superior Court.

Twardus, 29, is accused of killing his ex-fiancee, Kelly Gorham, and burying her body on a remote piece of land owned by his father in northern New Hampshire.

Gorham, 30, was last seen alive at her apartment in Alfred on Aug. 7, 2007. Her body was found three weeks later.

On the stand this morning is John Durfee, the Alfred resident who rented an apartment to Gorham. In the summer of 2007 Durfee and his wife lived in a main house on the property, Gorham lived in a barn-style garage, and Calvin DeGreenia lived in a pool house. Durfee and DeGreenia had dinner and drinks with Gorham on the night before she vanished.

Daniel Lilley, the lawyer for Jason Twardus, has hammered away at the credibility of Durfee and DeGreenia over the past two days, primarily by exposing several inconsistencies between their earlier statements to police and their testimony on the stand. Lilley’s theory is that those two men, not Twardus, killed Gorham. They have denied any involvement in the crime.

The murder trial opened Monday and is expected to run through the end of next week.
