UTICA, N.Y. - Members of the Utica Police Department, the Utica Fire Department, and the New York State Forensics Investigation Center testified on day four of the Andre Anderson murder trial in Oneida County Court.

Anderson is accused of stabbing his grandmother and setting her and her West Street apartment on fire in January.

Utica fire marshal, Gerald Foster says upon investigation, he found a gallon jug and powerade bottle at the scene, smelling of gasoline. 

Foster says there was evidence that the fire started in multiple parts of the kitchen and living room, which appeared to not be connected. He says there were multiple points of origin. He says he was able to eliminate any potential accidental causes of the fire.

"This is a set fire from human intervention," Foster said.

The gallon jug and powerade bottle found at the scene was taken to the NYS Forensics Investigation Center for DNA testing.

"The major contributor to the mixture profile from the swabs of the mouth of the powerade bottle, matched the DNA profile from Andre Jordan Anderson," Kurt Sickinger, a forensic scientist said. "The major contributor from the mixture profile from the swabs of the handle of the gallon water jug matched the DNA profile from Andre Jordan Anderson."

Amanda Maciol, a patrol officer with the Utica Police Department, spoke with the victim, Freddie Mckinney, at the hospital after the incident happened. Mckinney tells Maciol how the events played out.

"She stated that he came behind her and tried to stab her in the back, I asked, 'Miss Mckinney, did he stab you,' she stated I'm not sure, I grabbed the knife and it broke, and then he went and got something wet, he wet me, tried to lite me, and then she stated, he lit me," Maciol said.

In the body cam video from the night Maciol talked to Mckinney in the hospital, you can here Maciol ask Mckinney "What's his name?" and Mckinney replied "Andre Anderson."

The trial continues Friday morning. The people have finished their case and Anderson's attorney says Anderson will take the stand.
