JEFFERSONVILLE, IN (WAVE) - Graphic new details about the death of a Jeffersonville woman came out in day two of the trial of her estranged husband Dale Bagshaw.
The medical examiner was the first witness Thursday. Dr. Amy Beckham told jurors Kelly Bagshaw was actually stabbed 57 times, not 43 as stated Wednesday in opening statements.
Jurors saw pictures of the wounds while Dr. Beckham told them one wound to her neck that cut he jugular vein is what caused her death. She said Kelly Bagshaw was conscious the entire time before bleeding out. Beckman described Kelly Bagshaw's wounds as an act of passion because they were over her entire body.
Clark County Chief Deputy Prosecutor Jeremy Mull argues Dale Bagshaw murdered his estranged wife in November 2011 when the two got in an argument in the parking lot of Lafayette Apartments off 10th Street in Jeffersonville. Wednesday witnesses told jurors the couple's six year old daughter was watching from a window when it happened.
Dale Bagshaw's attorney, Perry McCall admitted he killed her, but said it was due to a mental disease and was not intentional.
