Defense witnesses testify in Montana double homicide trial
MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — The prosecution has rested and the defense has begun presenting testimony in the case of a double homicide that was reported to have happened in March 2013 in western Montana.
Caressa Hardy is charged in the suspected deaths of Thomas Korjack and Robert Orozco along with two counts of solicitation of murder for allegedly asking Missoula County jail inmates to kill Karen Hardy, the mother of his children and the person who reported he shot the victims and burned their bodies near Frenchtown.
Attorneys for Caressa Hardy, also identified in court records as Glenn Dibley, argued the alleged victims fled the country to avoid paying taxes and child support.
Theresa Gorka testified Tuesday that Korjack, her former husband, was imprisoned for failing to pay taxes and once had a passport in the name of his dead brother.
