Tyesha McNair's friends testify she feared James Brock would kill her

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  The double murder trial for James Brock continued into day four Thursday. Court proceedings were shorter with only three witnesses taking the stand.

Two of those witnesses were Tyesha McNair's best friends. They testified that Tyesha and James Brock's relationship was rocky throughout the years. The couple fought both verbally and physically. It was revealed that just days before Tyesha and her friend Terrence Clark were found dead at the Crystal Place Apartments, James Brock was arrested for hitting Tyesha and was issued a restraining order.

A week before Tyesha and Terrence were killed, a neighbor, Jilani Platt was killed by her husband. Tyesha's friends testified she told them "there will be another murder here". She alluded to the fact that she feared James Brock would take her life.

The third and final witness of the day, to take the stand was an inmate at the Muscogee County Jail. He testified that James Brock approached him inside the jail and asked for advice in his case. He asked the inmate, "do you think they would buy it if I said Tyesha and Terrence were robbed?" Brock also shared with the inmate in-depth details about the crime scene and information about the killings that only someone who had been there would know.

The prosecution says they have one more witness to call to the stand, an investigator with the Columbus Police Department, then the defense will present their case.
