Hakopian and Grigoryan’s three-month relationship was kept a secret from family members, and only few people knew that they were dating, Gaharmani testified.
Gaharmani warned Hakopian to get a restraining order against Grigoryan, she said.
The following day, Gaharmani and other family members attempted to reach Hakopian by phone, but were unable to do so, she testified.
Gaharmani testified that she learned about her cousin’s death hours later.
“I froze. I was shocked,” she said. “I didn’t believe it.”
Gaharmani rushed out of her home and headed to Hakopian’s home, she testified.
Gaharmani received a call from Grigoryan, who asked her where Hakopian was because she didn’t answer her cellphone, Gaharmani testified.
