The Macomb Daily reports on the first day of testimony in the trial of accused killer Michael George. Eight witnesses were called to weave a tale of George’s reported “weird” behavior surrounding the killing:

Joyce Selke said Michael George, who once sold insurance, met with her and her husband about purchasing life insurance for about $130,000, the same amount George had on Barbara George.

“It was such a large amount we couldn’t believe he said that much,” Selke said on the stand. “My husband and I were shocked that he suggested that amount. … He laughed and said that’s how much he has on Barb.”

Also: George and future wife, then girlfriend Renee were spotted kissing three to four weeks after the killing.

Bonus for the tabs: A sex-tape of George will NOT be put into evidence.
