DOVER - Accused murderer Tristan Wolusky allegedly bragged that he could get Oxycontin and the drug Molly just hours before he and two co-conspirators allegedly stabbed a Madbury teenager to death last year.
Wolusky, who will go on trial for first-degree murder next month, was at Strafford County Superior Court Thursday morning, for a final pre-trial hearing on motions submitted by the Attorney General's Office. During the hearing, new evidence was revealed about the night of Aaron Wilkinson's death, as well as details about his personal life.
Prosecutors want to tell the jury that Wolusky, of Rochester, was flirting with three women when he mentioned he could get drugs. Text messages sent by Wolusky that night back up these accusations, prosecutors say.
During the trial, evidence will likely be revealed that Wilkinson was a known drug dealer.
Wolusky told police after Wilkinson's death that he knew the teen sold cocaine, mushrooms, marijuana, Xanax and MDMA.
That is why he, Michael Tatum and Zachary Pinette went to Wilkinson's house and lured him outside in the middle of the night on June 21, 2014. When they arrived, Wolusky wrestled Wilkinson to the ground and started to stab him, prosecutors say.
Wilkinson was stabbed by the trio 22 times, both with knives and a machete. When they did not get what they were looking for, they drove the teen's body to Maine, where it was dumped alongside a rural road.
Assistant Attorney General Peter Hinckley said he expects to call approximately three dozen witnesses during Wolusky's murder trial, which is scheduled to last four weeks. Tatum and Pinette, who have told multiple versions of their stories, will both testify against Wolusky.
Jury selection begins on Sept. 2.
