Warning: some of the details in this story are disturbing.
SCOTTSBURG, Ind. (WDRB) -- She was strangled, stripped naked, and left for animals in the woods -- chilling details about the end of Nina Keown's life are coming to light as we near the end of the murder trial for her ex-husband.
Robert Petty remained silent as he marched into the Scott County Courthouse for the 10th day of his trial. The 33-year-old man stands accused of choking his ex-wife Nina Keown to death at his Lexington, Indiana home in August of 2010.
Authorities say he lied to family, friends, and police as they desperately searched for her remains for three weeks.
Keown's mother took the witness stand today along with the medical examiner who performed the autopsy on Keown's body. Doctor Michael Johnson says the autopsy was complicated by the condition of the remains.
With Keown being stripped and left in the woods, animals had attacked the remains. Organs had decomposed, ribs and other bones were broken, and the skull was exposed.
Johnson says he believes the case was a homicide -- that Keown died of asphyxiation, not the other injuries.
Court records say Petty eventually admitted to choking his wife following a fight about a mystery phone call. He says she was still alive when he left the home, but only able to mumble.
He says he did not call 911 because he was, "flipping out."
The prosecution closed its case today. Petty's defense starts Monday.
