Suspect lived with girlfriend's rotting corpse

STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) -- Prosecutors say a California murder suspect lived with his girlfriend's rotting corpse for months.

KTXL-TV (http://bit.ly/THObcl ) says Devon Epps was evicted from his Stockton apartment a year ago and the apartment manager found the decomposing body of 35-year-old Veronica Jones in the bathroom.

Jones was reported missing six months before her body was found.

The coroner says she was bludgeoned with a metal table pedestal raped and stabbed 32 times.

Epps was arrested and charged with murder.

Jurors were shown crime scene photos during Friday's trial session.
