Day two of Jedidiah Troxel’s murder trial began with the defense grilling the investigator who oversaw the crime scene where Tanya Kazmierczak’s body was found, and ended with graphic details and photos from the autopsy performed by Dr. Michael McGee, head of the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office.


McGee shared his findings with the jury, some of whom looked away while others stared in shock at the autopsy photos that showed 37 stab wounds on Kazmierczak’s torso.
