Jackie McConnell found guilty of 2nd degree murder


CALHOUN COUNTY (WKZ0) -- It didn’t take a Calhoun County jury long Friday morning to return a guilty verdict against 47-year-old Jackie McConnell of Albion, who confessed to police during questioning that he struck girlfriend Donna Frost with his fist, and that’s why she died.

They found him guilty of second degree murder.

He also told police during that interview that he had buried her body wrapped in a carpet in a burn pit at the tree farm where he worked near Albion. McConnell, a repeat offender, could get life when he is sentenced.
