Police seek bank, phone records in Kira Trevino case

Author:

Investigators still probing the disappearance of Kira Trevino filed search warrant affidavits for cellphone and financial records, the Star Tribune reports.

Two search warrant affidavits signed in early April and disclosed Tuesday indicate that authorities are seeking Kira and Jeffery Trevino’s financial records from Wells Fargo and all call and text data for their cellphones, the newspaper reports. Investigators also want to examine which cellphone towers were used in the calls.

Prosecutors are preparing for a second-degree murder trial of the missing woman's husband, Jeffery Trevino, scheduled to start May 28. Last week, they released a list of more than 200 witnesses they could potentially call, including Kira Trevino's family members and her co-workers at the Mall of America, the Star Tribune noted.

Defense lawyers have asked for more time to prepare, and they have been critical of prosecutors seeking the strictest penalties if Trevino is found guilty. Prosecutors are likely to lay out a case that Jeffery Trevino killed his wife and concealed her body, but defense lawyers say that argument is weak because the body – key evidence – has not been found.

Kira Trevino, 30, of St. Paul, was last seen on Feb. 21, and is presumed dead. Her body remains missing despite law enforcement and volunteer searches.

The St. Paul Police Foundation has offered $5,000 for information leading to the discovery of the body.
