Jermaine Glover Takes The Stand
Updated: Tuesday, March 5 2013, 09:56 PM EST
The man accused of killing his pregnant girlfriend, then burning her body took the stand in his own defense.
Jermaine Glover is charged with killing 21-year-old Misty Carter in 2009. Glover told jurors Tuesday he didn't know he might not be the father of her baby and that he hadn't seen her for three days before her body was found.
Misty Carter's sister also took the stand. Crystal Branson testified that Carter ran a massage business that may have included sex acts. She believes the final text messages from her sister's phone were sent by someone else.
A friend of Glover's testified that Glover couldn't have killed Misty Carter because he didn't have the strength after having part of a leg amputated.
The trial continues Wednesday.
