Kuebler murder trial underway

HINDS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The murder trial of Charles "Louie" Kuebler, 27, is underway in Hinds County Circuit Court.

Kuebler is charged with the June 30, 2010 shooting death of Tamara "Tammy" Stuckey, 28, at his Belhaven townhouse.

The prosecution called on Jackson Police officers who responded to the crime scene that night.

Each one testified that Kuebler was very irate that night, yelling obscenities; even using a racial slur towards African American officers.

The defense questioned whether evidence, like the position of the gun used to kill Stuckey, was tampered with by police.

Members of Stuckey's family were in the courtroom Tuesday.

"It's rough to sit through,"said Brad Berryhill, Stuckey's brother. "It's hard to sit there and watch the shots of where she's been shot and all that."

"He took away my baby sister and I can't call her no more or go see her and it's just heartbreaking that somebody could do that to somebody," said Jan Bennett, Stuckey's half-sister. "I just don't understand it. I would like for him to go to jail for life."

Robert Shuler Smith, Hinds Co. District Attorney, said the trial is likely to last through next week.

If convicted, Kuebler faces life in prison and would not be eligible for parole until he's 65-years-old.
