TULSA, Oklahoma - A jury trial is underway for a man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and putting her body into a recycling bin.

The trial for Konnor Brunner began around 9 a.m. Monday, January 13.

Brunner was arrested in November of 2018. Police say he confessed to shooting his ex-girlfriend Lauren Kidd inside his truck in the parking lot of an apartment complex. 

Police said they found blood on the passenger seat of his truck, and investigators said Brunner bought cleaning supplies to cover up the crime. 

Detectives said Brunner admitted to disposing of Kidd's body in a recycling bin, but they never found her body.

Police have been searching through a paper mill in McCurtain County for evidence. They said they found some evidence that matched blood found in the vehicle and the recycling bin.

Lauren's mother said she's relieved the jury trial is finally getting underway.
