Tallahassee Murder Trial to Start Monday

A Tallahassee man accused of killing his girlfriend goes on trial Monday.

Allan Rush was arrested last March, accused of murder and sexual battery in the death of his 22-year-old girlfriend, Sarah Fields. Police reports indicate rough sex may have led to Fields’ death, and autopsy reports show she died of massive internal bleeding.

Rush claimed this was a horrible accident, but prosecutors call it murder and say Rush did nothing to help his girlfriend before she died.

Jury selection starts Monday.
