Sgt. Corbett was able to testify that Yindra Mascaro provided an explanation for the July 1, 2014 voice mail from SG to HA. I don't know what Corbett would have said if he was allowed to give more testimony about Moscaro, but there is an affidavit by Moscara in which she says that Magbanua told her that SG "was jealous of [CA] and actually attempted to call him after getting a number out of [KM's] phone, which he supposedly left a threatening message." https://abovethelaw.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Statement-of-Yindra-Mascaro.pdf I'm thinking the state is going to say that SG got HA's number from KM's phone and called that number leaving a threatening message regarding the CA/KM relationship. (When Moscaro testified in the first trial she said that KM got dental work done by HA so it seems possible that HA's number was in her cell phone). The defense would not want that type of testimony in because they will probably claim that the SG/HA phone contact was a direct communication about the murder. Needless to say this is all my speculation .... JMO.Thank you! The State seemed eager to have Corbitt provided an explanation for the call, but the defense objected. Seems curious but there is so much evidence of Katie's concurrent contact with Garcia and Charlie, it will be difficult for the defense to credibly put forth any argument that she was clueless about the murder plot.
