The preliminary hearing in the Paul Flores murder trial resuming yesterday with testimony from a woman who knew Flores back in the mid 90’s.
Jennifer Hudson telling the San Luis Obispo superior court yesterday that Paul Flores told her in 1996 that he had, and I quote, “Taken care of Smart”. Hudson told the judge that Flores laughed after he said that. Hudson was 17 at the time.
She says she didn’t tell anyone about it for six years for fear she’d end up missing or buried somewhere.
The preliminary evidentiary hearing continues today in San Luis superior court.
Flores is accused in the disappearance and suspected murder of Cal Poly student Kristin Smart.
