Jeffrey Trevino claims he didn't cause enough damage to kill Kira Steger

ST. PAUL, MN (WTAQ) - The Minnesota man convicted of killing Wausau area native Kira Steger now claims he didn't cause enough of her injuries to kill her. 

A defense lawyer has asked a judge to throw out Jeffrey Trevino's guilty verdict for unintentional second-degree murder. 

John Conard said there was insufficient legal basis for the jury's verdict on October 2nd.  

Jurors said they could tie the 39-year-old Trevino to the killing of his 30-year-old wife Steger in February, but they could not find proof that Trevino planned the murder. Conard said there was no proof that Steger died from a serious cut above her left eyebrow. 

She also suffered a broken finger, but Conard said the injury only rises to the level of third-degree assault -- not murder. 

The defense lawyer mentioned nothing about testimony during the trial that Trevino likely smothered Steger.

Trevino is scheduled to be sentenced on November 25th.
