The murder trial of an eastern Iowa man opened Tuesday.40-year-old Kenneth Mohr of DeWitt admits staying at Sheila Sutton’s East Moline house last May 25th, the night of her murder. But he says he doesn’t remember what happened. He says he awoke to find her dead. Sutton’s strangled and stabbed body was found in her bedroom on June 2nd. Mohr went on trial yesterday, charged with two counts of murder. Prosecutors say Mohr confessed the murder to his friend, Scott Reilly, last August. They hope to put Reilly on the witness stand today. But defense attorneys want to block Reilly’s testimony. They say it was hypnotically induced after Mohr saw a psychiatrist.
