BANGOR – Items used to attack a man, including needle-nose pliers and a bent towel rack, have been introduced into evidence in the murder trial of the man’s wife in Bangor.
Law enforcement officers also showed crime scene photos to a judge on Wednesday in the trial of Roxanne Jeskey, who’s accused of killing her husband, Richard Jeskey, while in a jealous rage in June 2011.
Roxanne Jeskey told police she used several items including a baseball bat and pliers.
A medical examiner testified this week that the victim had been beaten and strangled, and had injuries from head to toe.
Testimony at the Penobscot Judicial Center was being heard by a judge, not a jury, at the defendant’s request.
The trial is expected to continue through the week.
