At 12:59 p.m. and at 1 p.m., two calls were made from Kelly Bagshaw’s phone to Dale Bagshaw.
At 1:01 p.m. and 1:02 p.m., calls were made from Dale Bagshaw to Kelly Bagshaw’s phone.
Previous testimony said that Bagshaw was attempting to get her to come up to his apartment to visit before she left with the children, who were in his apartment eating ice cream.
There are no additional calls on Dale Bagshaw’s phone until he placed one at 1:07 p.m. to his mother telling her that he had stabbed his wife.
From the phone records, it was determined that Bagshaw entered Kelly Bagshaw’s car and killed her between 1:02 p.m. and 1:07 p.m.
Although the timeline reveals that Bagshaw committed the murder in less than five minutes, Mull said there is little significance to the amount of time Bagshaw was in the vehicle.
McCall said the brevity of the situation is relevant, however.
He said the short time that the Bagshaws were in the vehicle together supports his argument that a brief argument resulted in Dale Bagshaw snapping in sudden heat before murdering his wife.
A focal point established early on in the defense’s case is that a call was made to Kelly Bagshaw’s cell phone while Dale Bagshaw was in the vehicle. McCall has said that there were suspicions that Kelly Bagshaw had become involved with another man, and Dale Bagshaw jealously grabbed Kelly Bagshaw’s ringing phone while in the vehicle, which instigated a physical dispute and the murderous act.
The phone records showed to the court that there was no call made to Kelly Bagshaw’s phone between 1:02 p.m. and 1:07 p.m.
McCall said the fact that no call was received, as Dale Bagshaw has told him and authorities, does not weaken the defense’s case.
