Video has emerged of the moment the mum of a teenager accused of killing a cheerleader was allegedly caught washing blood off her son's jeans.

Aiden Fucci, from the US state of Florida, is on trial for Tristyn Bailey's alleged murder who was stabbed 114 times.

Prosecutors allege Fucci's mum Crystal Smith, who has pleaded not guilty to evidence tampering, is seen washing a pair of jeans with blood on them, Inside Edition reported.

The footage was captured inside the family's home.

Smith allegedly started scrubbing the blood-stained jeans after her son was taken to the sheriff's office.

She was subsequently charged with evidence tampering on June and then released on a US$25,000 (A$34,538) bond.

In addition to the video of Smith, Action News Jax aired Snapchat videos Fucci recorded while in a police car with another teenage boy.

In the video, the boys can be heard saying, "Having fun. In a cop car", while addressing Tristyn before the video cuts out.

In another SnapChat video, Fucci is seen alone in a patrol car.

“Guess who’s in a f**king cop car, guys? Trippin’ dude, ” the 14-year-old says in the video, according to Action News Jax.

Final moments of Tristyn Bailey's life

Another new video released shows what the authorities say is the last time Tristyn was seen alive.

In the video, Fucci is seen walking east with Tristyn in their Durbin Crossing neighbourhood on the night she was stabbed to death.

The time stamp on the first video shows the pair walking down the street just after 12.15am on Sunday, May 9.

A second video shows someone, who police allege is Fucci, running in the opposite direction about 1.50am.

At 10am on the Sunday, Tristyn would be reported missing by her family. 

Her family told investigators she had last been seen about 1.15am that morning at a community centre, officials said at the time.

About 6pm on the same day, a man who was out for a walk found Tristyn's body in a wooded area and called 911.
