BERNALILLO, NM (KRQE) - Levi and Tera Chavez's cell phones were busy the October weekend when Tera died in the couple's Los Lunas home.
Verizon phone records presented at former APD cop Levi's murder trial Thursday showed Tera calling her husband dozens of times, with many of those calls going to voicemail.
Those records also show Levi's cell phone was in Albuquerque most of that weekend, up until a very critical moment when it appears to have been turned off.
Medical investigators determined Tera died from a gunshot from Levi's APD-issued gun sometime between late Saturday night and the early hours Sunday morning in October 2007.
But at 12:27am Sunday morning, Levi's cell phone stops registering with cell towers when calls keep coming in.
"The phone is shut off or is not connected to our network," said Jody Citizen with Verizon Wireless.
The cell phone isn't picked up by cell towers for 15 hours after that, at around 3:30pm Sunday afternoon.
Levi told investigators he left his shift at APD and went straight to his then-mistress APD Ofc. Debra Romero's Albuquerque home, arriving around 1 am. But Romero testified earlier in the trial she has no idea exactly when Levi got there.
With the phone turned off, it's impossible to pinpoint exactly where Levi or his cell phone were during a key part of the timeframe when Tera died.
Earlier Thursday, the jury heard from another mistress who came over to the Chavez home weeks after Tera's death.
