Trial Begins for Kent Co. Man Accused in Murder of Girlfriend's Father

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (WBOC) - The trial of a Kent County man accused of murdering his girlfriend's father began this week.

Prosecutors say killed Jerry Schweiger killed Tony Mozick Sr. in January 2013.

Tuesday the prosecution and defense made opening statements. And the prosecution began making its case.

A big part of that was showing the jury a video of police interviewing Schweiger's girlfriend, Jennifer Barnes. Barnes tells detectives in the video Schweiger killed Mozick and then dumped his body in the Leipsic River.

Police say it was put into a large plastic tote container before it was tossed in. In February 2013 police announced a trapper had found Mozick's body under a bridge.

Schweiger's defense denies he killed Mozick.

Barnes was also charged in her father's death. She was sentenced to 18 months behind bars after taking a plea deal last summer.

Barnes is scheduled to take the stand during this trial.
