ALFRED — The murder trial of Jason Twardus entered its second 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 witness stand this morning is Calvin DeGreenia, who lived on the same property as Gorham and began a sexual relationship with her in the week before her disappearance. Twardus’ lawyer, Daniel Lilley, has suggested that DeGreenia and the property owner John Durfee, partied with Gorham and may have played roles in her disappearance and death.

On direct, examination this morning by Deputy Attorney General William Stokes, DeGreenia denied those accusations and said he cared for Gorham.

DeGreenia testified that he and Durfee cooked out with Gorham on the night of Aug. 7, 2007, then he spent some time watching television in Gorham’s apartment in a detached garage. He said he went back to his own apartment at the property’s pool house and went to bed around 10:30 p.m.

“She had a good head on her shoulders. She had a good future,” DeGreenia said.

DeGreenia had difficulty remembering the sequence of events during that week. He also said he thought he saw Gorham on the property on the afternoon of Aug. 8 — several hours after police claim Twardus committed the murder. But DeGreenia said he now does not believe that person was Gorham.

Lilley is expected to cross-examine DeGreenia next.
