Defense begins case in murder trial

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The defense Monday began its case at the Ronald Santiago murder trial.

He’s the mortgage loan processor accused of killing his clients, Greg and Bernadette Ohlemacher in their west side home in 2005.

The defense has tried to show that their daughter Renee could be the killer.

The first defense witness was an APD lie detector expert who testified her test results about the murder were inconclusive.

On Tuesday, relatives of the dead couple who believe Renee was behind the murders are expected to testify.

The case could go to the jury by the end of the week.
