Burcham is charged with the murder of Sharon Stafford 18 years ago. The detective who worked in the 1993 case took the stand telling jurors that Burcham's story was uneven in two interviews with detectives. The trail surrounds an alleged confession in 2009 by the 46 year old Burcham. The defense is arguing it was falsely made, pointing out Burcham's history of repeated inconsistent statements.
