((30-year-old Jeffrey Thomas was led out of court after two hours of testimony that implicated him in the death of 16-year-old Tara Rose Munsey.
Two witnesses, both friends to Thomas, took the stand as key witnesses against him.
Barbara Helton said she knew Thomas for a month before Tara Munsey disappeared.
She testified that he confessed to her that he'd shot Tara Munsey, the morning after the girl disappeared from a Fairlawn Taco Bell. Her body was found two weeks later.
Thomas' friend Kevin Williams said on the stand that he'd left the weapon now linked by authorities to the murder in the back of Thomas' car just days before Munsey was killed.))
