FLORENCE, Ala. (WAFF) - A grand jury will soon hear evidence against an accused murderer in Lauderdale County.

Roydricker Bullock was in court Monday after police say he killed Patrice Lott in February.

It’s a day that Patrice Lott’s family will never forget.

“It’s devastating for our family as a whole because we never had anything like this happened.”

At Bullock’s hearing, testimony revealed new details of what police say happened before Lott’s 8-year-old daughter found her dead in her bed.

Investigator Kevin Jackson with Florence Police department testified in court, laying out the timeline of events.

Jackson said Lott was stabbed multiple times. He said Bullocks story didn’t add up, and that investigators were able to connect Bullock to the crime using his phone’s GPS and other data.

Originally, Bullock told officers that he was in Greene County, about three hours away from Florence.

By tracking his phone, investigators were able to see that he left Greene County right after midnight on February 13th. Jackson said the GPS showed Bullock traveled North toward Florence, and then pinged in Florence around 2:41 a.m.

Investigator Jackson said they also saw his car on surveillance video in the area.

Investigators believe that Lott was killed some time on February 13th. Her daughter found her the next day.

Next, a grand jury will hear the evidence against Bullock

This is an ongoing investigation as investigators are still waiting for more details from forensics.
