Robert Sybert, the man that Houston County District Attorney George Hartwig described as the getaway driver, took the stand late Wednesday afternoon in the James "Eddy" Clements trial.
Clements is being accused of hiring Sybert and his son Richard to kill his wife, Joni Clements.
Sybert came into the courtroom in an orange jumpsuit with hands cuffed.
The prosecution, led by Hartwig, questioned Sybert.
Hartwig asked Sybert if he was literate and he said he wasn't, but he acknowledged that he could sign his name, which he had on the plea deal.
Sybert told jurors that Clements asked him several times about shooting Joni and that Clements offered him money--$5,000 to $10,000, depending on how much insurance he could get.
Hartwig also asked him about a house key to the Clements home. Sybert told jurors that he saw James "Eddy" Clements give Richard, the man who investigators say shot Joni, the key.
Sybert said he was told by Clements that the key was in case he or his son had to use the restroom.
He said a few times during his testimony that he didn't know his son was going to kill Joni. He told jurors, "If I had known he was going to shoot her, I wouldn't have taken him."
He also told jurors that he stood beside his son and watched him bury the gun. Veronica Akey with the Warner Robins Police Department testified that police found the gun in March, about 180 feet from the Sybert trailer.
The prosecution played a 55-minute, shortened version of the four-hour police interview with Clements.
Clements was asked to recount his day by officers. During that interview he talked about his children. Towards the end of the shortened version of the interview, police allowed his daughter Jorden Anne Clements to join him.
She looked upset, asking, "Why is my momma gone?"
She told her father that someone shot her mother, and in response, he said, "They wouldn't tell me anything."
Hartwig questioned Warner Robins Detective Brett Rozier about his observations during the interview of James Clements the night his wife died.
Hartwig asked what Rozier thought of Clements's reaction to what his daughter told him about Joni Clements. Rozier said that he didn't think Clements appeared to be upset as he carried on the conversation.
The trial is expected to carry on through the week.
