Trial begins for girlfriend accused of killing boyfriend

A woman facing homicide charges in connection to the death of her 19-year-old boyfriend will go on trial.

WPXI reports that a Friday testimony said Khalil Parker died of shock due to the bruises, cuts and abrasions he had all over his body.

Parker had only been dead 5-10 minutes before 911 was called, according a medical examiner.  Emergency crews found Parker’s girlfriend, Crystal Marie Belle, was found performing CPR when they arrived to the apartment on Seventh Street.

Police said 150 pieces of evidence with blood on it was collected from the scene.  Blood was found on a snow shovel, scissors and pliers, reports WPXI.

Belle wasn’t seen or heard from again until her arrest on July 14 after she called detectives saying news coverage of the crime was going to get her killed.
