Defense attorney David Washington questioned James Parker about having a possible vendetta against Lester Parker because he had once evicted him.
James Parker said he had no ill will toward Lester Parker, but contacted police after learning about the December 2015 fire.
Prosecutors say Lester Parker was “under water” financially in December 2015 and hatched a plan to have the house set on fire for insurance money while he and his wife were in Las Vegas. According to prosecutors, Tucker agreed to light the fire in exchange for payment in pills.
The trial is set to resume Monday morning.
