Murder Trial Underway
By KWGS News
Tulsa, OK – With a jury seated, testimony gets underway today in the first degree murder trial of John Kastner. The former Webster High School coach and teacher stands accused of the killing his wife, Lori. The trial is being held in Judge Tom Gilert's courtroom.
At the time of the murder in 2008, Kastner claimed his wife was killed by an intruder at their west Tulsa home. Police says evidence pointed to Kastner as the killer and allege he did so to collect insurance money to offset debt.
