On Friday, prosecutors concluded their case against Jeffrey Trevino, accused of killing his wife, Kira Steger, in February. Steger’s body was found in the Mississippi River three months later. Prosecutors took two hours questioning retired St. Paul Police Sgt. John Wright for the second time in the trial. He discussed his interviews with Trevino, and provided details about the couple’s deteriorating relationship in the months leading up to her disappearance. He told the jurors that Jeffrey and Kira planned to have a date night on the night she was last seen. Wright said the Trevinos were trying to save their relationship, which he said had been suffering for months.
Friday brought more emotional testimony during the murder trial of Jeffrey Trevino. The St. Paul man is accused of killing his wife, Kira Steger last winter. Her body was found in May. Most of the testimony came from Steger’s close friends, all of whom stated that they heard Steger mention relationship problems leading up to her disappearance.
