Accused murderer takes the stand

Oct 12, 2010 2:48:00 PM - thestate.com
The accused killer in an Internet romance gone wrong, Theodore Manning, took the witness stand this morning in the Richland County courthouse and blamed one of his other girlfriends for coming up with the idea to stuff Nikki McPhatter’s body in a car trunk and burn the car and body up in rural Fairfield County.

“She told me to lift her feet and help her put Nikki’s body in the car,” Manning, 31, testified.

Girlfriend Kendra Goodman also had the idea to loot McPhatter’s bank accounts by using her ATM cards at a Columbia Wachovia ATM after the body was disposed of, said Manning, who worked at Westinghouse on Bluff Road near his house.

Goodman, one of six girl friends in Manning’s life in May 2009 when McPhatter was killed, originally wanted to take McPhatter’s car for herself before coming up with the idea to burn it, Manning said.

“She said it was such a pretty car and she wanted to keep it,” Manning testified.
