Jurors in Wayne Oxley's murder trial were back in action Tuesday, after having the day off. Oxley, 40, of Ogdensburg is accused of killing his neighbor, Bernard Trickey, with a baseball bat.
One day after the murder, a baseball bat was found in Oxley's basement. Defense testimony in the trial continues this week. Taking the stand Tuesday was an SU Professor who is a DNA expert. The professor compared DNA from Oxley, Trickey, and John Shannon to the DNA found on the baseball bat.
He testified there was DNA from multiple individuals found on the bat, possibly including the DNA of both Oxley and Shannon. Shannon was found dead in his New York Avenue apartment one month after Trickey's murder. The trial continues Wednesday.
