Testimony Continues in Kansas City Serial Rape Trial
KANSAS CITY (AP) - Testimony has been continuing in the Jackson County trial of a man charged with raping four Kansas City women in the 1980s.
Bernard Jackson has pleaded innocent to several felonies, including rape, sodomy and robbery in the attacks in Kansas City's Waldo neighborhood in 1983 and 1984.
The Kansas City Star reports that a friend of one of the alleged victims testified Tuesday that her friend changed dramatically after an attack in her home. Michelle Bonhag said she was one of the first people the rape survivor called after the attack and that the victim later lost her light-hearted nature and became very serious.
Testimony Tuesday also included a police officer, a former crime scene investigator and a hospital nurse.
The trial is expected to last more than a week.
