More testimony continued Friday in the William Murray murder trial in Clarksburg.

Prosecutors said Murray and Clayton Collins killed Thomas Blankenship, 20, with a wrench last year and buried his body in Barbour County.

Friday the jury heard from a forensic pathologist about Blankenship's wounds.

The pathologist said the death wasn't immediate and that there was "some period of survival."

The jury saw pictures of the wounds to Blankenship's head that experts said caused several skull fractures.
