The lawyer for the Coast Guardsman charged with shooting two fellow Coast Guard members said his client “surely knew of” the victims since they were all stationed in Kodiak, together at one point, but he declined to confirm that they had any sort of relationship. "There's no proof to that at all," attorney Drew Segadelli said about accusations that his client had been fixated on Lisa Trubnikova. Segadelli is the l...
