The murder trial of Colleen McKernan continues on Thursday. McKernan is charged with shooting and killing her husband on New Year’s Eve 2014, less than a year after they got married. This is the second time McKernan is standing trial for her husband’s death, after a previous trial ended in a hung jury. McKernan has long claimed she acted in self-defense.
On Wednesday, the prosecution called witnesses from the Massillon Police Department, the Stark County Coroner’s Office, and the Bureau of Criminal Investigation. They will continue to present their case on Thursday.
