WAUSEON, OHIO (WNWO)-- James Worley isn't expected to testify during his murder trial. However, a close friend of his did Lawrence Krise, who said he's known the Defendant for 35 years.

Worley is accused of kidnapping and killing University of Toledo student Sierah Joughin back in July 2016. He faces multiple charges including aggravated murder with death penalty specifications.

Fulton County Prosecutor called Krise to the witness stand Wednesday morning. He lives off of County road 6 in Fulton County. Krise described them occasionally watching bondage porn together, sometimes while his mother was in her room napping. Krise also testified Worley showed him lingerie, and bondage materials including a ball gag and leather mask. When asked if Worley told him what he was going to use the items for, Krise said the defendant mentioned possibly using it for women met on an online dating site, wanting to tear the lingerie instead of their clothing. Krise also said alleged killer also mentioned starting a porn business.

While watching the proceedings, Worley asked for item's to be moved so he could see Krist testify.

Before Krise's testimony, Ohio BCI Agents also took the witness stand, describing items that were collected for possible DNA analysis. Those items included:a ball gag, restraints, adult diapers and multiple pairs of rubber gloves. There were also packages of white tube socks and zip ties and Gorilla tape found on the floor near the crate in the north barn.

There was something that was not collected: human feces and a shovel found in a cornfield on County road 7 near roads J and K where Joughin's body was found. This was pointed out by Defense Attorney co-counsel Merle Dech, who asked the investigator whom the shovel belonged to and why the feces wasn't collected. The investigator responded by saying he wasn't sure who the shovel belonged to or if the feces were human or animal. He later explained feces isn't tested for DNA evidence since it's mostly bacteria.
