While still on the phone with the sister-in-law, who was at Alicia's home, the detective heard Longoria's voice. Longoria had gone to Alicia's home, and the detective could hear him trying to organize a search party.
Can you believe this? He's an animal.....and she is one sick puppy. She KNEW he was chasing a 14 yr old girl....and did nothing..except tell him "to take care of the problem". Just what did that mean? And she has a little girl of her own!!!!! How stoopid and neglectful is that???
I'm furious. How desparate.....for both of them. Oh my word!!!

SNIPPED FROM ARTICLE BBM
GREAT BEND - Attorneys for the man charged with capital murder in the death of a 14-year-old Great Bend girl want the case dismissed, arguing the prosecution released information combined with conjecture that could influence the jury pool.
In a motion filed Friday afternoon, the Kansas Death Penalty Defense Unit attorneys for 36-year-old Adam Joseph Longoria question why the Kansas Attorney General's Office opted to make public Longoria's stint as an informant for Great Bend police and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation - information the prosecution previously wanted sealed.
The defense motion argues the state unnecessarily released information on June 30 - including the state's analysis on the case and details of Longoria's alleged "fixation" with 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt - demonstrating "more than a desire to turn up the heat on the pressure cooker of Great Bend, Kansas, to insure that prospective jurors know clearly the state's theory of the case and to inflame their passion."
The state, in its June 30 motions, also released numerous text messages from Longoria's and DeBolt's cellphones between July 18, 2010, and Aug. 21, 2010, when Longoria is accused of luring the girl into his vehicle, taking her to an isolated area and attempting to rape her before killing her.

I didn't recall about the charges being changed, so I went back and found the article. Interesting find on the sodomy allegations and why they were dropped. ?? So do they think there was another male involved...? She had been shopping all day with her family before she met up with AL..right? So when was she with the unknown male?
Fri, Jul. 22, 2011--- Adam Longoria gets new hearing as prosecutors revise charges
Initially, Longoria had been accused of killing DeBolt after sodomizing her. But DNA recovered from DeBolt's body later was determined to belong to an unknown male, Longoria's public defender Jeff Wicks told the judge.
Now, the state has replaced criminal sodomy in the capital murder charge with attempted rape.

Adam Longoria faces trial, but not death penalty in case of slain Great Bend teen
Instead of death, he would face life without parole if convicted, said Ron Keefover, spokesman for the state's Office of Judicial Administration.
DeBolt's family read a brief statement outside the Barton County Courthouse saying they support prosecutors' decision not to seek the death penalty. The family declined to answer questions.
Kevin O'Connor, a special assistant attorney general, told Judge Hannelore Kitts that the state's decision not to seek the death penalty was based on careful deliberation of the facts, the conservative application of the death penalty law, and how appellate courts might view the case.
Now I am confused....I thought they dropped the sodomy charges?
When the case goes to trial, a jury will decide whether Longoria is guilty of capital murder and whether the underlying crime involved is criminal sodomy, aggravated criminal sodomy or attempted rape. Prosecutors are presenting each of those three crimes as alternative theories of how DeBolt was killed after she disappeared in August 2010.
The state laid out its case during a two-day preliminary hearing.

Text messages detail Adam Longoria's relationship with Great Bend teen before her death
Convenience store clerk Jenna Pitchford testifies in Barton County District Court in Great Bend, Kan.,
Stephanie Smith, an intelligence specialist with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, analyzed messages taken off DeBolt's phone after her death, comparing it to data from Nex-Tech — the phone carrier she and Longoria used. Smith presented a series of text messages between DeBolt and Longoria, beginning on July 18, 2010, and ending the night she disappeared from her home four weeks later.
Texts between Longoria and DeBolt ceased, but the teen continued to send and receive texts, records show. Records also showed that both phones were communicating with towers in the general vicinity of the asphalt plant.
