Jury deliberating in Calhoun County murder case


ALBION (WKZO)-- 47-year-old Jackie McConnell is waiting to learn his fate.  He gave detectives one version of the violent death of his girlfriend soon after he allegedly buried the body a pit at a tree farm near Albion where he worked. He gave jurors a substantially different version in court yesterday.

He told detectives in a video viewed by the jury that they were arguing, he punched Donna Frost in the face and it killed her.

The new version involved her striking him first with a ceramic pot, and tripping over a pet.

]The autopsy results support his original version.

The Jury deliberated for two hours yesterday and will resume this morning.
