Nicholas T. Sheley smoked crack with a Sterling couple and asked them where he could cash a check the night 93-year-old Russell Reed was killed, a Sterling woman testified Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012. Amber Gonzales saw blood on the jeans shorts Sheley was wearing. When her husband asked him about the blood, Sheley said, "I just got done killing somebody," she testified. Sheley then laughed and said he actually had been gutting fish, she told the jury. Gonzales was one of eight witnesses to testify Wednesday, the third day of Sheley's murder trial.
