CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Bags found inside an SUV took center stage during the trial of a man accused of killing three people.

The SUV was parked inside the garage of the burned-out home on Patricia Ryan Drive.
Prosecutors said Justin Hurd set the home on fire after he killed Kevin Young and his girlfriend Kinshasha Wagstaff in February 2008.
Inside those trash bags were a gas can, water bottles and shoes.
A crime scene investigator on the stand said it looked like the shoes had blood on them.
Hurd is also accused of killing Wagstaff's niece, Jasmine Hines.
Hurd's attorneys said the case against him is circumstantial and that no witnesses will say they saw Hurd at the murder scene.
