HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) -- Day 3 in the trial of Samuel Conway, a Garland County man who is accused of killing five people, then setting their house on fire. Even though the defense was expected to begin its case, the prosecution continued presenting witnesses against Conway Thursday.
Chantel Henry, Conway's cousin, testified against him, telling the court that Conway admitted to him in a conversation to killing Jeremy Gentry, three of his family members and his girlfriend.
The prosecution also said several fingerprints of Detric Conway, Sam Conway's brother, were found all over the rims that were allegedly stolen from their older brother, Ernest.
A Hot Springs airport surveillance camera caught Samuel Conway's car, his brother Detric's girlfriend's car and Jeremy Gentry's grandfather's truck making several trips back and forth on the night of the murder.
Prosecutors say they were transporting the stolen property from the Gentrys to another location. Gentry's truck was found later abandoned and on fire, soon after the house fire was discovered.
The defense is now expected to present its case, briefly, Friday along with closing arguments and then jury deliberations are set to begin.
