GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado man being re-tried in his wife’s murder denies any involvement in her death or their daughter’s disappearance.

Michael Blagg took the stand Tuesday, something he didn’t do during his first trial. He told jurors in Golden that he came home from work in November 2001 and found a blood-soaked mattress in the couple’s bedroom.

He called 911 to report his wife Jennifer and daughter Abby missing but said on cross-examination that he didn’t search for them in the house first.

Jennifer Blagg’s body was found in a landfill but Abby was never found.

Blagg was found guilty of murder in 2004 in Mesa County but his conviction was later overturned because a juror concealed her experience with domestic violence.
