Duran Redwood, 30, is accused of beating his partner to death. Celeste Yawney, 33, was found dead in a bathtub, with apparent blunt trauma. Officers discovered the body after Redwood's ex-girlfriend's mom brought him to the police station, because he told her he had found Yawney's body in the bathtub. Redwood is currently standing trial for second-degree murder. Cell phone records indicate Redwood and Yawney's phones had several back-and-forth exchanges. The jury heard that before 2:00 a.m., a phone message from Redwood's phone was sent to Yawney that read "better hide."
