Trial continues, with defense suggesting leads were ignored

A closely watched murder trial continues today in White River Junction.

Prosecutors are trying to bolster their contention that police did a thorough job investigating the 1991 slaying of 28-year-old Patricia Scoville in Stowe.

But the defense is implying that police assumptions about when and where it occurred limited their search for the killer.

The developments came in the second day of the trial of 61-year-old Howard Godfrey, who is charged with aggravated murder in Scoville’s death.

Godfrey was charged in 2005, in part on the strength of what investigators say was a DNA match.
