LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - More police testimony was heard in court Friday during the murder trial of Jeffrey Mundt.

On Thursday, Jurors listened to Mundt's interviews with Louisville Metro police following the discover of Jamie Carroll's body in June 2010.

Carroll disappeared in December 2009. His body was found six months later buried in the basement of the home Mundt shared with then boyfriend Joseph Banis after Banis was arrested during a domestic dispute between the couple.

A jury found Banis guilty of complicity to murder in March for the death of Carroll. After his conviction, Banis agreed to a sentence of life without the possibility of parole for 20 years in exchange for his testimony against Mundt. Banis also had to waive his right to appeal. His formal sentencing is set for June.

 

 

Mundt faces murder, robbery and tampering with evidence charges. Banis is expected to be called to testify.
