Sanderholm's Boyfriend Testifies at Thurber Trial

WINFIELD, Kan. (AP) _ Jodi Sanderholm's boyfriend at the time she was murdered testifies in the trial of the man accused of killing her near Arkansas City.

Prosecutors used Colby Wilson's testimony this morning to rule him out as a suspect in Sanderholm's disappearance in January 2007.

Justin Thurber is charged with first-degree murder, kidnapping and
rape in Sanderholm's death.

Also on the stand this morning were a couple of Thurber's friends who prosecutors say he claimed to be with the day the girl vanished. They contradicted Thurber's story that prosecutors say he first told police when he was questioned about the kidnapping.
