Treehouse where prosecutors claim Julia Enright killed Brandon

Treehouse where prosecutors claim Julia Enright killed Brandon Chicklis shown to jury in second day of murder trial. When Brandon Chicklis didn’t come home on a June night more than three years ago, the brother of Chicklis’ girlfriend said the family went around putting up missing person posters.

Thomas “TJ” Williams said they put up posters to find out if anyone in Westminster or surrounding towns had seen Chicklis.

It wouldn’t be until weeks later, just shy of Chicklis’ 21st birthday, that his body would be found on the side of the road in New Hampshire.

After spending weeks wrapped up in blankets, bags and duct tape during the summer, the remains of Chicklis were mostly skeletal, a medical examiner testified Tuesday in Worcester Superior Court.

Authorities say Chicklis, a 20-year-old who lived in Westminster with his girlfriend and her family, was fatally stabbed inside a treehouse by a former girlfriend and classmate, Julia Enright, in June 2018. Charged with murder, Tuesday marked the second day of trial for Enright.

Jennie Duval, a chief medical examiner in New Hampshire, took the stand to describe her examination of Chicklis’ remains. Members of the Massachusetts State Police also took the stand Tuesday, showing photos of stains that may be blood, which were discovered in Enright’s Prius and in the treehouse. They also showed photos of business cards for dominatrix services offered by Enright and displayed several knives and journals collected during a search of Enright’s home.
