HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Court update: 5 p.m. 

The prosecution called its sixth witness to the stand. IRS Agent Bradley Luker was questioned about funds and tracking the money.

Luker said HUD gave him $98,000. Allegedly, $38,000 was used for houses and the remaining $60,000 was used by Fairley for Mt. Carmel Baptist Church.

Luker finished his testimony just before 6 p.m.

Judge Starrett informed the jurors to make hotel reservations for Friday night, in the event that the trial goes into Saturday. 

Court update: 10 a.m. 

The prosecution picked up where they left off Thursday with their 5th witness Robert Weeks, a HUD OIG agent. 

During a March 30,2015 meeting with Fairley, the FBI and OIG officials, Fairley was questioned about the missing money. 

Fairley claimed it was not what it seemed, and that all the money went to Interurban, which is Fletcher's company. 

Fairley then requested to speak to Weeks one-on-one and asked him "what he was looking at."

Weeks testified that Fairley began asking specifically if it was a "felony or a misdemeanor." 

Weeks then said Fairley said he would "have to see this matter all the way through." 

More audio recording played in trial reveal Fairley telling Fletcher that "Pinebelt owes Artie Fletcher $150,000."
