Live Coverage of the Christopher Lee Schwenk Jr. Murder Trial

UPDATE: A jury convicted Christopher Lee Schwenk Jr. Of third-degree murder on July 27, 2015.

While two men were arguing in the 200 block of South Queen Street at East Hope Avenue on Nov. 6, 2013, Monique Nixon walked by shortly after 3 a.m.

At that moment, York City Police said, Christopher Lee Schwenk pulled a handgun and fired at Eddie Gallon III.

The bullet struck Nixon, 49, “an innocent bystander,” police said, in the chest.

Now, Schwenk, 26, of the 200 block of South Queen Street, is on trial for first- and third-degree murder.

“She had a smile that would light up a room, and she always made everybody else smile,” Nixon’s husband, Mark

Nixon, told the Daily Record days after she was killed. “She was beautiful. She was a wife; she was a daughter; she was a mother; she was a sister; she was a grandmother.

“She called her mother on the phone every day, at least twice a day. Her whole life revolved around her family.”

Schwenk, who remains in York County Prison without bail, faces a mandatory life in prison without parole if convicted of first-degree murder and a maximum of 40 years in prison if found guilty of third-degree murder.

Police said the dispute between Schwenk and Gallon was over another woman.

In January, Judge Thomas H. Kelley VI ruled that two jailhouse informants who claim Schwenk spoke to them about the killing may testify for the commonwealth.

multiple blunt force trauma.

The autopsy revealed Bratton had hemorrhaging of the brain after being hit in the front and back of the head, according to charging documents.

She also had abrasions on her right shoulder and hip, as well as broken ribs, scratches on her hands and bruising on her neck, knees and legs, documents state.

Taylor told police the couple went to bed about midnight Sunday and he woke up at 10:30 a.m. to find Bratton unresponsive, according to court documents.

He attempted to revive her by putting her in a tub of cold water, the documents state.

Police said there was no explanation as to why Taylor waited three hours to call 911.

While being transported to Central Booking, Taylor told detectives, “If I did it, I didn’t mean to,” according to court documents. “Do you think it would help me if I tell the judge I didn’t mean to do it?”
