Windham home invasion trial using DNA evidence

Carvalho’s alleged partner was never caught by police after a widespread search that included officers from at least three towns, a K-9 and a state police helicopter, according to court testimony.
“She saw at least two men break into the house,” Conway said. “Both were wearing all black. They were wearing ski masks and do-rags. Samantha was terrified.”
While a dog barked in the background, Gervais can be heard saying, “Who is that? This is Samantha. What are you doing? What are you doing?”, before the line goes dead.
“I could hear glass breaking. People were running around the house for sure,” Mirisola testified.
While he was being booked, an officer found a piece of material in his hair that was similar to insulation inside the bedroom of the home where an open safe was located, Conway said.
A DNA sample taken from Carvalho could not be excluded from one of the facemasks police later found, Conway said.
Public Defender Devens Hamlen argued that Gervais was lying to police about the men invading her home, and remained uncooperative with police as they continued to investigate the break-in.
Hamlen said jurors would hear about Gervais’ brother being arrested on drug charges.
