BRIDGEPORT - The longtime girlfriend of convicted murderer Russell Peeler continued her testimony Thursday in the defendant's second murder trial.

Angelina Keene appeared calmer and more cooperative today as she answered questions from prosecutors in the ongoing murder trial of Peeler, who is the father of her three children.

However, Keene said she either did not understand many of the questions, or could not remember well enough to give definite answers.

Peeler is on trial for the drive-by murder of rival drug dealer Rudy Snead. He is currently on death row for ordering the separate killings of 8-year-old Leroy Brown and Brown's mother, Karen Clarke. State officials say they believe the two crimes are interconnected.

The trial is scheduled to continue on Friday.
