FITZGERALD, GA (WALB) -

A Tifton man is on trial this week in the 2016 murder of a former lottery winner.

Prosecutors say Dabrentise Overstreet killed Craigory Burch just months after Burch won more than $400,000 in Fantasy 5 jackpot game in November of 2015.

Tuesday is day two of the trial.

Overstreet is one of seven men prosecutors say killed Burch inside his home in January of 2016.

A woman who claims to be the getaway driver in a 2016 murder, testified in court.

Keyana Dyous began by telling jurors she only knows of Overstreet by his nickname Trill.

She said on the night of the murder she dropped Nathaniel Baker, Overstreet, and another man off on a street in Fitzgerald.

She testified that she thought the men were gambling. 

A short time later she said Baker called to pick him and the others up. 

She told jurors later that night they were driving everyone was talking about what had happened.

That's when she testified in front of the jury that she heard Overstreet said he had "peter rolled" Burch. 

When the district attorney Brad Rigby asked her what 'peter rolled' means, Dyuous told Rigby and the jury that meant kill. 

Earlier in the trial on Tuesday morning Burch's cousin, Roderick Holland took to the stand.

He told jurors about where he and Burch had been that night. He told them he left Burch around 10 p.m. the night Burch was killed.

Burch's girlfriend at the time, Jasmine Hendricks also testified on Tuesday in an emotional testimony.

She told jurors she was there when three men entered her home on Stubbs Avenue and shot Burch.

She described one of the guns the men used as long, about 2 and a half feet, and black.

She told jurors she and Burch were sitting on the couch holding their two infants.

Another child, that was not Burch's, she said was asleep in the bedroom.

She described the three men to jurors, saying they were all black. She said the one who shot Burch multiple times was buff.

Overstreet is not the first man on trial for the murder of Burch.

Nathaniel Baker and Wayan Malik Jordan were both found guilty in previous trials of murder, among other counts.
