Whittemore trial continuing Friday
Rochester, N.Y. -- Testimony is scheduled to continue Friday in the trial of the man accused of beating his girlfriend to death at the College at Brockport in 2012.
Clayton Whittemore, 22, faces murder charges in the death of Alexandra Kogut, then 18.
Jurors heard graphic details Thursday about what police found when they discovered Koguts body in her dorm room Sept. 29, 2012. They also saw photos of her injuries after the attack, uncluding some inflicted by a mug and a curling iron, among other objects.
Whittemores attorneys said the trial should be a case of manslaughter because of his mental state during the attack. They said Whittemores father had a history of abusing him, causing him to snap during an argument with Kogut.
