Edward Klub, a former coworker of Mark Jensen, took the stand Friday morning. He testified about how Jensen told him that he wanted to kill his wife and that he had been researching ways to it which it would be undetectable. He recounted one such conversation with Mark at a hotel. Klub said he was so surprised by this conversation, that he went to his room and called his then-wife, JoAnne to tell her about it.
The prosecution then called to the stand his ex-wife, JoAnne Klug, who now lives in Wyoming. She recounted the call she received from Edward.
For the rest of the day, jurors watched hours of testimony from the original trial. The Late Officer Kosman of The Pleasant Prairie Police department passed in 2018, so prosecutors played video from the 2007-2008 trial. There was no clear reason for the extended testimony, and apparently the jury agreed. Once juror had to be woken up by a bailiff. Hours of photos of a day-planner that didn’t seem to add anything to the case, other than showing the juror a gratuitous dick pic.
As you will read later in the week, Jambois is a controversial figure and he seems to be taking his time with this case, oftentimes calling two or three witnesses to say the same thing – asking 25 or more questions, when one or two would have done. Jambois left the gruesome autopsy photos on the three large courtroom TV’s for far too long. Maybe next week will get into the evidence.
