CBS RADIO Hot AC WBMX (MIX 104.1)/BOSTON middayer ERIN O'MALLEY was in court YESTERDAY (9/22), as part of a murder trial of "TREEFON MANOLOULES, the SOUTHBOROUGH man prosecutors say instructed his son CHRISTOPHER and ROBERT UPTON to murder his brother, ARIS MANOLOULES. TREEFON MANOLOULES is married to UPTON's sister, DEBORAH. All three men are charged with his murder. TREEFON MANOLOULES is the first to stand trial," reports METROWESTDAILYNEWS.COM.
O'MALLEY had dated UPTON for several years. "I was very distraught, because somebody was dead and I'd been lied to for years," O'MALLEY testified.
When police searched O'MALLEY's apartment the day her boyfriend was arrested, they found nothing to implicate him. Then a few days later, O'MALLEY said, "she had a 'gut feeling' the police missed something, and, with the help of her sister, found what appeared to be a gun case and a box of bullets in a brown paper bag leaned up against a box containing a fake CHRISTMAS tree," writes METROWESTDAILYNEWS. "O'MALLEY said she pried open the case with pliers hoping she'd find nothing inside. Instead, she testified, she found a black Ruger P85 9mm handgun that prosecutors have said her ex-boyfriend had bought hours before he shot ARIS MANOLOULES dead."
"I would give anything to not be involved in this nightmare," O'MALLEY said.
