Adriana Mendez's Interrogation Video From Back In 2013 Released Today In Daniel Blizzard Murder Trial

Posted: Updated:
 YAKIMA, WA.- Daniel Blizzard is accused of hiring a hit man to kill Yakima real estate broker Vern Holbrook last year.

    Today, footage from Adriana Mendez's interrogation back in 2013 after Holbrook's assault was shown to the jury.

     Mendez could hardly hold back tears as the court reviewed the footage of her interrogation.

   Defense attorney Peter Mazzone discussed the rules of Mendez's plea bargain. This deal ensured she would be free from any charges, as long as Blizzard was found guilty. 

"The agreement called for you being let out simply by testifying, the fact is that so long as you testify you will be let out," defense attorney Peter Mazzone said while Mendez was on the stand.

 The video showed Mendez first deny any link to the assault and then later admit to being in the home where Holbrook was brutally beaten.

  The interrogation video took up most of the afternoon. Mendez will take the stand again tomorrow to finish questioning regarding the released interrogation footage.
