Doctor at murder trial testifies on DuMond’s injuries
LIBERTY, Mo. — The day after Carol Shields fought
for her life in a north Kansas City apartment, accused killer Wayne Du-Mond
showed up at his doctor’s office with a scratched face and injuries
to a shoulder and an elbow.
Someone suffocated Shields in her extramarital boyfriend’s
apartment on Sept. 20, 2000. DNA samples taken from beneath her fingernails
tied DuMond to her death.
Dr. Jerry Kirkland, who took the witness stand Friday
on the fifth day of DuMond’s first-degree murder trial, had been
treating the castrated rapist for a "testosterone deficiency problem,"
he told jurors.
DuMond told the doctor he had injured himself in a fall
down a flight of stairs, Kirkland said. "He had scratches on his
face, swelling on his shoulder and elbow, and discoloration on the thigh,"
Court began Friday with the assistant prosecuting attorney,
Daniel White of Clay County, resting the state’s case.
Attorney Anthony Cardarella, who then opened DuMond’s
defense, was the one who put Kirkland on the stand. But the doctor’s
testimony appeared to do as much to hurt the parolee’s case as it
did to help it.
Before he finished questioning the doctor, Cardarella
finally elicited the testimony that court observers had been waiting for.
"What is your understanding as to whether Mr. DuMond has testicles?"
Cardarella asked. "My understanding was that he did not," the
The testimony did not include any explanation about how
Du-Mond lost his testicles, but those who have kept up with DuMond’s
life know he is the Arkansas man who raped a 17-year-old cheerleader from
Forrest City in 1984. Someone castrated him before his 1985 trial.
DuMond moved north in 2000 after the Arkansas Post Prison
Transfer Board released him to Missouri, the only state other than Arkansas
that would accept him. Within weeks of DuMond’s arrival in Missouri,
Shields was dead. Cardarella opened DuMond’s defense by attempting
to shift suspicion for Carol Shields’ death to Mark Shields, her
husband. He began by quoting a question Carol Shields had asked her friend
Delores Buchanan eight months before Shields’ death. "Delores,
what are they [police] going to do when they find my body, and I have
a restraining order?" Cardarella said Carol Shields asked Buchanan.
No one has testified that Shields ever sought court protection from her
Cardarella told the jury the defense would show that
Shields was afraid of her husband and had been planning for some time
to leave him. "This [domestic abuse] was Carol’s only secret,"
In the witness chair, Buchanan recounted conversations
she had with Shields about domestic abuse. "She had asked me questions
because she knew I was a victim of spousal abuse," Buchanan said.
"She wanted to know how difficult it was to be out on your own."
Cardarella called Don Klug, who is the ex-husband of
Mark Shields’ current wife. Klug admitted calling investigators
anonymously when his wife left him in May 2001 to accuse Mark Shields
of murdering Carol Shields.
Klug told the jury he made the anonymous calls because
he "didn’t want to involve [his estranged] wife... and didn’t
trust the police."
Klug told investigators that his estranged wife told
him Mark Shields suspected Carol Shields was having an affair. "Are
you making up the stuff you’re telling this jury?" Cardarella
asked Klug. "It took me a long time to get over this," he said.
"I don’t want to be a thorn in Mark Shields’ side, but
I’ve told you the truth here.
" I don’t know for sure that Mark did kill
her, "he admitted." I’m not God. "
DuMond’s former employer returned to the stand
Friday to tell that he and DuMond belonged to the same church —
Beulah Land — in Independence, Mo.
DuMond was allowed to move from his mother’s home
in Arkansas to Smithville, Mo., after he married a member of the Beulah
Land church. Among the conditions of DuMond’s parole was that he
meet weekly with his parole officer. In testimony on Thursday, Missouri
parole officer Robert Trotter said that on the day of the murder, DuMond,
54, told him that he was feeling ill with a stomach flu and probably wouldn’t
go to work that morning.
The prosecutor asked Dr. Kirkland if DuMond complained
of the stomach flu when the doctor saw him Sept. 21, 2000.
" He didn’t mention anything about it, "
