Warren's wife testifies, identifies Warren as voice heard on surveillance tape
EUREKA- In day two of Jason Warren’s preliminary hearing his wife of seven years testified and identified Warren as the voice captured on surveillance footage from victim Dorothy Ulrich’s Hoopa home on Sept. 27, 2012, the day she was killed.
Ulrich’s sister-in-law identified Ulrich’s voice as the woman heard in the video pleading for her life and yelling Warren’s name out loud. The surveillance camera also captured a man walking out of Ulrich’s home around 4:30 in the morning, just moments after the yelling ended.
Warren’s wife testified to the courts that it was Warren who she recognized on that surveillance camera walking out of the front door. The prosecution also brought forward evidence collected from the scene that matched a bloodstain on Warren’s left shoe to the DNA of Dorothy Ulrich.
On Tuesday, the prosecution presented surveillance footage from the Hoopa Mini-Mart, which they believe shows Warren and Ulrich meeting up around 9:30 a.m. on Sept. 26 2012 and leaving in Ulrich’s car together moments later. They also presented video surveillance from Ulrich’s home, which showed both arriving in her car nearly 20 minutes after leaving the mini-mart.
Warren is charged with two counts of Murder and two counts of Attempted Murder along with two special allegation charges, lying and wait, and torture. If convicted he faces the death penalty or life in prison without the possibility of parole.
On Thursday, the preliminary hearing will continue as it leads up to the second crime in which Warren is allegedly tied to, where former HSU professor Suzie Seemann was killed while jogging along the road. Check back with News Channel 3 as the story unfolds.
