STOCKTON — The wife of a Manteca man charged with kidnapping and killing a Ripon woman told San Joaquin County sheriff's detectives she saw the shoulder of a woman's body in her family's bathtub the same day 46-year-old Mary Morino-Starkey disappeared.

Detective Lawrence Gardiman testified Tuesday that Lolita Akemi Rodriguez of Manteca, the accused killer's wife, told him in June that she saw the woman's shoulder in the tub about 6:30 or 7 p.m. on June 15.

Gardiman was one of 11 witnesses called by San Joaquin County Deputy District Attorney Robert Himelblau during the start of Roy Gerald Smith's preliminary hearing before Superior Court Judge Bernard J. Garber.

Smith appeared in court on his 44th birthday.
