Mark Jensen’s Former Wife Testifies As New Trial Enters Second Week

By Pete Serzant, WLIP News

KENOSHA, WI (WLIP)–Week two of the retrial of Mark Jensen started Tuesday.

Most of day four of testimony was dominated by Kelly Brooks, Jensen’s former wife whom he married after the death of Julie Jensen.

She testified that she had an affair with Mark Jensen starting in 1998, in the last few months before Julie’s death.

What followed was an hours-long review of emails between Mark Jensen and Brooks-who went by her maiden name and then first married name at the time.

After Julie died and Brooks’ first marriage fell apart she moved to Kenosha and eventually married Mark Jensen.

They later divorced.

Another theme in yesterday’s proceedings was the debate over allowing Mark Jensen’s sketched x-rated images into evidence as well as testimony about Jensen’s obsession over the male anatomy.

Mark Jensen is charged with murdering Julie Jensen and was convicted in 2008.

That verdict was overturned on appeal and a new trial was ordered.
