Testimony to continue in McConnell murder trial

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Testimony will resume Wednesday in the trial for an Albion man charged with murdering his girlfriend.

47-year-old Jackie McConnell is charged with second degree murder in the death of 42-year-old Donna Frost.

Frost disappeared in January.

Two weeks later, police tracked down McConnell in North Carolina. They say he confessed.

During testimony Tuesday, detectives say McConnell told them he laid with Frost's body for hours in bed crying, then dumped her body in a pit several hours later.
