Daphne Wright’s murder trial resumed this morning, with more
prosecution witnesses expected to testify.
Wrightâ€™s landlord and former lover was the first witness called to
the stand this morning and is testifying at this hour.
They shared the house where Darlene VanderGiesen allegedly was dismembered.
Prosecutors have outlined a gruesome portrait of Wright as a
cold-blooded killer who took VanderGiesen’s life in a jealous rage
because she suspected the victim was dating another women.
But Wright’s attorneys, who have sought to downplay reports that she
purchased a chainsaw to dismember the victim’s body, say the evidence
will not support theories that Wright is the killer.
The trial is expected to last up to four weeks.
