The Jedidiah Troxel murder trial continues today in Thief River Falls. The 32-year-old Crookston resident is accused of murdering 40-year-old Tanya Kazmierczk in August last year.

More investigators took the stand Wednesday and walked the jury through several graphic crime scene photos. Kazmierczk was found with 37 stab wounds - 11 of them to her chest and 4 to her side. Kazmierczk's husband Jeff was in the courtroom, and at times held his face in his hands unable to look at the photos. The defense questioned investigators on the stand -- about crime scene security and possible evidence contamination. If convicted of the murder, Troxel faces a life sentence. The trial picks up again Thursday morning.
