KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The Besham Sugrim murder trial has gone to the jury.

Asstistant Prosecutor Stuart Fenton’s case depends on the testimony of Sugrim’s own wife, Bernadette, who testified how he confessed to the killing that night.  Fenton also cited Sugrim’s own words to detectives about the ‘evil seed’ within him.  Defense Attorney Robert Champion questioned the credibility of the witnesses, wondering why they waited so long to talk.

Late yesterday, the jury spent a little an hour and a half deliberating before they were sent home.   They will resume their work this morning.
