OKLAHOMA CITY -- The second day of testimony continued Wednesday in the murder trial of Chloe Thomas.

Thomas is facing charges, along with Chadd Phillip Raymond, for the murder of Anne Hill.

Hill was last seen on April 11, 2014, and was never heard from again after leaving a friend's house.

Six months after Hill vanished, Thomas confessed taking part in her murder to police, along with Raymond.

Thomas told police Raymond "attacked Anne and strangled her until she died."

During the first day of testimony, an Oklahoma City homicide detective said Raymond told them he choked Hill first, but Thomas finished it.

Raymond said he and Thomas took Hill's body and dumped it in a field in McClain County.

A year after Hill disappeared, her skull and two dozen bones were found scattered in a field.

Wednesday afternoon, the jury heard testimony from Thomas Phillip Raymond, Chadd Raymond's brother.

He said that she would babysit his daughter, and was willing to do whatever she could to take care of everyone, including selling cocaine.

Thomas Phillip Raymond was already in jail on drug charges when the murder happened.

The jury also heard testimony from Detective Chris Miller, who was working for the Oklahoma City Police Department homicide unit at the time of the investigation.

That's when the prosecution introduced evidence of the initial interview with Thomas.

Detective Miller said there were many discrepancies in her story.

Prosecutors believe Thomas may have been jealous of Hill because she also had a relationship with Raymond's brother, Thomas.

He told the jury he knew Chloe, but they were not romantically involved.

Raymond accepted a plea deal and is serving 35 years in prison for his involvement in the murder.

He is expected to testify Thursday morning.
