A man accused of killing his wife last year took the stand Wednesday afternoon in Harrison County Circuit Court.

Terry Messenger, 61, has been charged with first degree murder in the fatal stabbing of his wife Ida "Dolly" Messenger.

Investigators said the couple was only married for a few months before Dolly was killed.

Messenger will appear in court again Thursday when both the defense and prosecution will present their closing arguments in front of the jury and Judge James Matish.
