Jury deliberations resume in Jeffrey Trevino murder trial

ST. PAUL, MN (WTAQ) - A jury resumes deliberations this morning in the trial of Jeffery Trevino -- the St. Paul man accused of killing his wife, Wausau area native Kira Steger. 

After hearing closing arguments Tuesday, the jury of eight men and four women deliberated for seven-and-a-half hours before they called it a night around 9 p.m. 

In his final argument, Ramsey County prosecutor Richard Dusterhoft outlined three reasons the 39-year-old Trevino is guilty of killing the 30-year-old Steger.  

Dusterhoft said their marriage had already fallen apart as Kira was having an affair with Ryan Wendt -- the timeline of events left no room for anybody else to commit the murder -- and there's too much physical evidence that can only point to Trevino as he allegedly killed his wife in a bloody fight at their home. 

Defense attorney John Conard said no one heard an assault, only a small amount of blood was found in the bedroom, and Trevino's body showed no evidence that he defended himself in a brawl.

Conard disputed the significance of the blood evidence, and said that Steger's actual killer has not been captured. 

Steger had been missing for two-and-a-half months before her body was found in the Mississippi River in St. Paul in early May.
