Witnesses testify LeClair said twice before he would dump his wife’s body in the lake

Local News

49-year-old Christopher LeClair is on trial for the death of his wife, Karen LeClair.  Investigators say he shot her in the head, tied an anchor to her body, then threw her into Lake Erie.  

New testimony reveals that story lines up with conversations allegedly involving the defendant in years past.  Two different witnesses say LeClair told them of his plans to dump his wife into the lake and make sure no one could find her.  

But, for the defense, a medical expert also testified this morning, claiming the bullet wound is more consistent with a suicide than a homicide.
