MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Testimony begins Tuesday in the trial of a Milwaukee man accused of killing another man by stabbing him 55 times.

28-year-old Alexander Goodenough is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the death of 57-year-old Kenneth Johnson. He was found dead July 7th at a rooming house the victim owned.

According to police, Goodenough claimed at first that he had no idea what happened – but he admitted to the killing the next day.

Prosecutors said Goodenough accidentally stabbed Johnson – and the victim responded by swinging his fists. Goodenough then said he stabbed Johnson repeatedly until he collapsed.

Defense lawyer Kelli Thompson said the two men were good friends, and most of the victim’s 55 stab wounds were minor cuts that Johnson got while Goodenough was trying to defend himself.

She said her client was shocked that his friend had died, and he panicked and took $150 from Johnson’s room.

Goodenough’s trial is scheduled to last through the end of the week.
