The April Millsap murder trial has resumed. 


James VanCallis is accused of murdering the 14-year-old back in July of 2014. He's charged with first degree murder, kidnapping and assault with intent to commit sexual penetration.

The day she was killed, April Millsap was out walking her dog, Penny, on the Macomb Orchard trail in Armada.

The trial is expected to last a few weeks. Prosecutors say they have 34 witnesses.

On Tuesday, Armada’s police chief was on the stand for most of the day, answering questions about the day Millsap's body was discovered and how defendant James VanCallis became the primary suspect. 

Jurors also heard from the deputy medical examiner who performed the autopsy on Millsap.
