LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – The teenager accused of killing his parents and three siblings in 2019 is back in court on Friday for the fifth day of his capital murder trial. Sisk was 14 when his family was killed.
During Tuesday’s testimony, the court heard from multiple witnesses, including family friends the Sisks visited in Florida the weekend before the murders, as well as first responders who were at the scene that September night.

Among the witnesses called were Dr. Jonrika Malone, the state medical examiner who performed the autopsies, and Limestone County Sheriff’s Deputy Justin Fields, the first deputy to speak to Sisk at the scene.
The defense filed a motion to have the trial dismissed on Thursday, and Limestone County Judge Chadwick Wise said he would take the motion “under advisement” before testimony continues from investigators at the City Sheriff’s Office. Limestone County, Jake Abernathy (who was patrol deputy at the time) and Caleb Durden, Steve Campas, Aviagen microbiologist, Kristin King and Leslie Ramsey, former Limestone County Sheriff’s Office investigators, Brandon Best, employee from the Alabama Department of Forensic Science, Combine Public Communications employee Greg Bartlett, as well as Sisk’s former girlfriend and another teenager who went to high school with Sisk.
