DOVER - A neighbor of accused murderer Tristan Wolusky testified on Tuesday that she agreed to ask alleged co-conspirator Michael Tatum to change his testimony on Wolusky's behalf because she "was asked to by a friend."
Alexandria Wyant, of Rochester, faces a charge of conspiracy to commit witness tampering, after the state reviewed recorded telephone conversations she had with Wolusky, and eventually Tatum.
The jury heard portions of those telephone conversations. This is what was said as Wyant and Tatum arranged to meet at Strafford County House of Corrections, where he was housed with Wolusky:
AW: Um, can you do weekends or no?
MT: Um, yeah, I could do this Sunday.
AW: Yeah, because I have Sunday off, too.
MT: All right, awesome. Um, what time this Sunday?
AW: Um, whatever time works for you.
MT: All right, uh, does twelve sound good to you?
AW: Yeah, that's fine.
Wyant said she believed Wolusky when he told her it was a third person who "hacked up" stabbing victim Aaron Wilkinson. She had known Wolusky for five to six years before his arrest, and met Tatum during a camping trip.
Wyant even asked Wolusky directly about the murder, which was highly publicized.
"You didn't do it, did you?" Wyant asked during one of their many phone conversations.
"No," Wolusky replied.
Even though Wolusky wanted Wyant to see if Tatum was left- or right-handed, and told her to check for a wire, Wyant testified that her friend had a special message for Tatum during their jailhouse meeting.
"Tristan wanted me to tell him, tell Michael, that he missed him and that he was hoping he was doing all right," Wyant said.
Tatum is expected to take the witness stand Wednesday in the first-degree murder trial.
