A jury has found a Michigan man guilty of second-degree murder for killing a woman whose body was found at a tree farm in southern Michigan.
The Battle Creek Enquirer reports that 48-year-old Jackie McConnell was convicted Friday in the death of his 42-year-old girlfriend Donna Frost in January. His trial started Tuesday in Calhoun County. He faces up to life in prison.
McConnell confessed to the murder and told police where to find Frost's body 12 days after police say he killed her and left her in a ditch.
Family members say McConnell and Frost had a history of domestic violence. They say they tried to stage an intervention two days before Frost disappeared.
