FAIRFIELD, Ill. (WFIE) - Testimony continued Wednesday in the murder trial of Brodey Murbarger.

He’s accused in the 2014 murder of 15-year-old Megan Nichols.

Police say Nichols was initially considered a missing person until her remains were found in a rural area in Wayne County, Illinois in 2018.

On Tuesday, Nichols’ mother began her testimony. She continued Wednesday.
