Last week, Colleen McKernan, 27, entered a not guilty plea in the Stark
County Common Pleas Court. Attorney Ian Friedman stood by her side during
the hearing as she faces murder charges for the death of her husband last
New Year's Eve.
CantonRep.com reports, McKernan, a former Massillon resident, called 911 on December 31 from
the home she shared with husband Rob McKernan, 29. On the call, McKernan
admitted that she was drunk, that there had been an altercation between
her and her husband and, after he struck her, she had shot him several
times. McKernan can be heard trying to perform CPR on the 911 recording.
The couple had only been married eight months.
Following her arrest, McKernan was confined to house arrest and has been
electronically monitored as she awaits trial. She has only been allowed
to leave the house to meet with Attorney Friedman.
Murder Trial Forthcoming
McKernan's trial will begin on April 22 with Judge Julie Geiser presiding.
If convicted, McKernan could face life in prison. Attorney Friedman is
currently working diligently to ensure that circumstances of the incident
are accurately presented to the jury and that McKernan's voice is
emphatically put forth in court.
