Tristan Wolusky murder trial begins Thursday, accused of killing Madbury teen


DOVER - Tristan Wolusky's murder trial will begin on Thursday morning with a view of the alleged crime scene.

Wolusky, of Rochester, is accused of conspiring with Michael Tatum, of Barrington, and Zachary Pinette, of Springvale, Maine, to rob Aaron Wilkinson of Madbury on June 21, 2014. The trio wanted drugs and money from the known teenage drug dealer.

The state argues the crime was premeditated. The men super-glued their fingers to avoid leaving fingerprints. They took off their shoes when they got to Wilkinson's house, to avoid leaving footprints, the AG's office says.

Wolusky even bragged he could get drugs prior to the alleged crime, according to Assistant Attorney General Peter Hinckley, a prosecutor in the case.

During the robbery gone wrong, Wolusky and his two co-conspirators ended up stabbing Wilkinson 22 times with a knife and machete. When they got away with nothing but petty cash, the trio brought Wilkinson's body to a remote road in Maine, where they dumped it.

Both Tatum and Pinette have pleaded guilty to their involvement in the crime, and are spending decades behind bars. They each are expected to testify against their former friend during the trial, which could take up to a month.
