Jeffrey Conrad testifies in his murder trial
UPDATE: The defense has rested its case in the Jeffery Conrad murder trial.
The judge will recess. Closing arguments and jury deliberation will start Monday.
Jeffrey Conrad, the man accused of killing Casey Cox at the Reidland storage unit, took the stand in his own murder trial on Friday.
Conrad was one of the first witnesses called to testify.
Conrad said he was in the process of moving when he saw both Brandon York and Casey Cox locking what he said was his storage unit.
In an emotional testimony, Conrad said in the commotion his only concern was for the safety of his friend and his own life, and he was remorseful taking another person’s life.
"God forbid anyone has to go through this. I wouldn’t wish this on anybody," said Conrad.
Conrad said he was defending his then ex-girlfriend Missy McKendree. She is also expected to testify on Friday.
