As members of murder victim Brenda Steen's family cried quietly, a witness testified Wednesday in court that David Cauthen told him he had killed Steen.
Cauthen is charged with murder in the Oct. 17, 2004, stabbing death of Steen, 36. Her body was found in a culvert off Camp Creek Road two days later.
Cauthen's trial began Monday.
Tommy Killen Jr. told the jury Wednesday that Cauthen, an acquaintance, came to his apartment on Plantation Road on Oct. 17, 2004, and was obviously upset.
