TX - Michelle Carrasco, 18, raped & murdered, San Antonio, 15 Aug 2006
SAN ANTONIO -- Prosecutors said a man on trial in connection with the 2006 slaying of an 18-year-old woman tried to cover up the crime by pouring steak sauce on the teenager.
The trial of Edward Campbell got under way Wednesday, with jurors hearing how Michelle Carrasco was stabbed, strangled and sexually assaulted before her death.
Prosecutors also allege that Campbell may have been trying to cover up DNA evidence in an unusual fashion -- by pouring steak marinade over the victim's body.
Defense attorneys counter that Carrasco was killed in self-defense.
Several investigators testified about what they found at the crime scene, including how Carrasco was killed.

From July 2009:
Campbell eventually confessed to causing the death of Michelle Carrasco and provided specific details that had not been released to the media, such as the location of the stab wound and the identification of a substance that was poured on her lower body. Campbell was released after taking police to the location where he disposed of the knife he used to stab Michelle; he also took police to the location where he hid the clothing he wore at the time of Michelle’s death...
The case was tried by a jury, who determined that Campbell was guilty of manslaughter and sentenced him to eighteen years’ imprisonment.
