Brother-in-Law Testifies at Pilcher's Murder Trial

OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) - The brother-in-law of a man on trial for the murder 40 years ago of a teenager has testified that the accused asked for his help as police closed in on him.

The Ottumwa Courier reports that Frank Weiss testified his brother-in-law, Robert "Gene" Pilcher, called him in 2012 to say he was sending Weiss his wallet. Weiss said Pilcher told him he was being investigated for murder, and in case he was found guilty, he wanted Weiss to take care of some money issues while he was in jail.

Weiss also testified that Pilcher said he "had done some things in his past that he wasn't proud of."

Pilcher is on trial for first-degree murder in the 1974 slaying of 17-year-old Mary Jayne Jones.

Trial resumes on Tuesday.
