LA MARQUE — Three days of sex, drinking and drug use culminated with the alleged robbery and fatal stabbing of an 84-year-old woman, testimony revealed Wednesday in a teenager’s capital murder trial.

Kimberly Jackson, 25, of La Marque testified she met the defendant, Jor’Dan Jacqueinn Maurice Lewis, on May 26, 2011, when he was 14. It was a Thursday night.

Lewis is accused of stabbing Vaneeda Wright 28 times inside her house on Prune Street in La Marque. He became possibly the youngest defendant ever certified to stand trial in Galveston County as an adult in a capital murder case.

Wright’s daughter and grandson found her body May 29, 2011, on her kitchen floor in a pool of blood with a butcher knife embedded in her cheek.

That Thursday night, Lewis was among the friends who went with Jackson to an apartment shared by two adult men at Mainland Crossings, 7500 Emmett F. Lowry Expressway, in Texas City. The following day, Jackson and Jor’Dan were alone in the apartment as everyone else went to Walmart.
