Ohio man who killed young woman before her wedding promises alibi

0

HAMILTON, OH — John Carter, a 35-year-old man accused of murdering his fiancée Katelyn Markham 12 years ago, will present an alibi at his trial next month, according to recent court records from Butler County Common Pleas Court. The documents say Carter wants to prove he was not at the crime scene when Markham was allegedly murdered.

The statement filed Friday states that Carter was at an unknown location in Fairfield, Ohio, from the late evening of August 13, 2011, to the early morning of August 14, 2011 – the time period in which Markham was killed. The exact address was not given.

The case attracted renewed attention when Carter, who had reported Markham missing on August 14, 2011, was later charged with her murder.

He had called 911 to report her disappearance and claimed he had last seen her before midnight the previous evening. Although her keys and purse were found at her home, her cell phone was missing. Local prosecutor Michael Gmoser commented on the alibi, noting that defendants often claim to have been in another location during the crime.
