Jeffersonville murder trial to hinge on mental state, 'heat' arguments

Defense to seek insanity, act of rage relief



Bagshaw, 47, is on trial for killing his estranged wife, who was 30 years old at the time of her death Nov. 13, 2011.

Bagshaw stabbed his wife with a pocket knife during an argument in her vehicle, which was parked outside of his home in Lafayette Square Apartments on 10th Street in Jeffersonville. The two were separated at the time, according to testimonies, and Kelly Bagshaw was at the apartment complex to pick the 2- and 6-year-old children they share. The children are believed to have been in Dale Bagshaw’s home when their mother was killed in the parked car outside the apartment building.

Witnesses said from the witness stand the couple had previously filed for divorce after seven years of marriage.

Mull said he intends to provide to the jurors audio of Dale Bagshaw’s statements to police and physical evidence from the incident during the trial today.

The case will continue into next week in Clark County Circuit Court No. 4 with judge Vicki Carmichael presiding.
