MCKINNEY, Texas (AP) - A North Texas jury will resume deliberations Wednesday in the trial of a Dallas-area man accused of murdering his girlfriend.

The Collin County jury began deliberating Tuesday night in the trial of Jason Lowe. The 28-year-old Richardson man is accused of killing 27-year-old Jessie Bardwell.

Lowe testified that he and his girlfriend had taken the mind-altering drug GHB before having sex in a shower where she fell and struck her head. He testified that the couple decided to lie down after the fall but says 27-year-old Jessie Bardwell never awoke.

The Dallas Morning News reports that Bardwell’s decomposing body was found in a rural area northeast of Dallas in May 2016.

Lowe could get up to life in prison if convicted.
