She also said that, the defense also failed to establish any connection between the girl and the crime. It was also reported that the ex-girlfriend was near Cable`s home when the incident took place. Murray wrote, “This trial must be the trial of Kyle Dube”. When contacted defense attorney and prosecutors had declined to comment before Mondays opening statement.
