LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Connor McCowan took the stand in his own murder trial on Thursday afternoon. He is the Okemos teen accused of stabbing to death his sister's boyfriend, Andrew Singler.
The incident happened in February.
Tears fell as McCowan took the stand in his own defense. He recalled the night leading up to the fight that ended in Singler's death. He said the text messages exchanged beforehand made him nervous.
But he remembers the days of the two of them as best friends and he wanted to work things out with him when they met that night. He told the court he was nervous walking up to the house, not knowing what to expect.
He told the defense he was "trying to be on the safe side," when he pulled out a knife from the center console of his car, opening the blade.
McCowan said Andrew began to punch him in the head before he took out his knife. He recalled seeing bright lights after, which is when he said he grabbed the knife.
"I just needed him off me. I tried to get him off me," he said. "I was terrified. I thought he was going to kill me. I've never seen him that mad."
So far, the emotions have been high, as both Connor's sister, Shay and his father, Randy have taken the stand revealing that Connor and Andrew had a close relationship. Connor's sister described it as being "like brothers." Connor's father was the first person he went to after the fatal fight ended.
Randy also says Singler was like another son to him.
The trial is expected to continue on Friday. Stay with 6 News for updates.
