Hayward, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The teen who is already serving time for what authorities are calling a thrill kill with satanic overtones has taken the stand against Christopher Roalson.

Austin Davis, who has already been sentenced to 25 years for his involvement in the murder, took the stand against Roalson, who is charged with first degree homicide and burglary after 93 year old Irena Roszak was found dead.

Davis was called to the stand by the prosecution and was asked to recall the night of Roszak's death.

Davis says that he thought that he and Roalson were just going to burglarize the home, but did not know if Roalson had any other intentions that night.

Davis says that when Roalson went into Roszak's bedroom he heard screaming and someone saying "Hail Satan".

Davis also said during the trial that after they left Roszak's home, Roalson seemed "happy and cheery" and allegedly said that he was Satan's son.

After the afternoon recess, the defense will cross examine Davis.

We'll have a full report on the murder trial coming up tonight in our newscasts.
