Jury in Adrian Loya Murder Trial Visits Crime Scene


BARNSTABLE – The jury in the Adrian Loya murder trial visited the Bourne condominium complex Thursday where Loya is accused of going on a shooting rampage that left one person dead.

They were shown the location of the shooting and the area where a Bourne police officer responding to the scene was shot.

Prosecutors say Loya forced his way into the condo in February 2015, killing Coast Guard Petty Officer Lisa Trubnikova, and injuring her wife, Petty Officer Anna Trubnikova.

Bourne Police Officer Jared MacDonald was shot in the back and has spent the last two-plus years recovering.

After visiting the scene of the crime, jurors were shown a recorded interview police conducted with Loya after the shootings during which admitted to the shootings.

Loya was previously deemed competent to stand trial, but defense attorney Drew Segadelli argues his client was not able to understand the wrongfulness of his actions and is arguing an insanity defense.

Loya has been held at Bridgewater State Hospital since he was arrested shortly after the incident.

He’s charged with murder, three counts of armed assault to murder; three counts of aggravated assault and battery; two counts of armed home invasion; two counts of armed assault in a dwelling; three counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony; two counts of armed kidnapping with serious bodily injury; burglary and assault on an occupant; arson of a motor vehicle; possession of a hoax device; assault and battery on a police officer; and 10 counts of possession of a large capacity feeding device.
