JANESVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - Janesville Police now say they have several pieces of evidence that link a 28-year-old man to the beating death of his 21-year-old girlfriend.
Authorities first said that Clayton Courtney's pants had blood matching the DNA of Britney Cross.
Friday, the Janesville Gazette said police also had several items of Courtney's which links him to the slaying -- including a baseball, a T-shirt, and a pocket-sized Bible.
Cross was found dead May 5th along a downtown riverbank in Janesville. That was a day after Courtney was arrested for the non-fatal stabbing of his roommate, Michael Clark.
During that incident, police said Courtney claimed to have killed 3 people that night. So far, investigators have only found evidence of one such killing -- that of Courtney's girlfriend.
He awaits a Rock County trial on six charges in the stabbing incident, including attempted homicide.
