Investigator Bill Glover said Monday he interviewed Gary Dunn on Dec. 29, 2005, two weeks after Dirksmeyer was found dead in her Russellville apartment. Glover says Dunn appeared to be left-handed and that he signed a statement using his left hand.
Last week, Dr. Charles Kokes testified that cuts and stab marks on Dirksmeyer's neck and shoulders were likely inflicted by someone right-handed.
Prosecutors say Dunn is linked to the crime scene from DNA found on a condom wrapper; defense attorneys say it's not a match.
Friday, a DNA examiner with the state Crime Laboratory testified that tests conducted on more than a dozen items after Nona Dirksmeyer's murder yielded no matches to the two suspects in the case.
Thursday, Kevin Jones' mother Janice took the stand, as well as Nona's mother and stepfather Carol and Duane Dipert and a scientist from the Arkansas State Crime Lab.
They all testified about what they remember from the day Nona died in 2005, and the scientist testified about collecting evidence from Nona's cell phone.
Kevin Jones took the stand Wednesday, describing how he found Nona in her apartment, and apologized for contaminating the crime scene by straddling her and performing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation
