Witnesses: Minn. man angry over missing wife post

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Witnesses say a Minnesota man thought friends’ attempts to find his missing wife with a Facebook post were “blown out of proportion.”

Jeffery Trevino of St. Paul is on trial in Ramsey County on second-degree murder charges. Trevino is accused of killing his wife, 30-year-old Kira Steger (STEG’-ur), who went missing in February. Her body was found in the Mississippi River more than two months later.

Steger’s childhood friend, Lindsey Wolf of Wisconsin, testified that she posted a picture of Steger on Facebook on Feb. 24 alerting others to her disappearance. The Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/15c8o5d) reports Wolf testified that Trevino told her to take down the post.

Trevino’s attorney noted that Trevino’s concern was that Steger would have to explain her affair if she wasn’t missing.
