Whittemore murder trial to continue Tuesday
Rochester, N.Y. -- The defense will begin to present its case Tuesday in the trial of the man accused of murdering his girlfriend at the College at Brockport in 2012.
Clayton Whittemore is accused of murdering his girlfriend in her SUNY Brockport dorm room in September of 2012.
Defense attorneys want to convince the jury that the murder of Alex Kogut was an "extreme emotional disturbance" and have his conviction reduced to manslaughter.
Otherwise, Whittemore would face a murder conviction and a possible life sentence.
