WORCESTER (CBS) – Julia Enright cried at the witness stand in her own defense, but in an unusual move, the judge did not allow video cameras in the room.
Her own words showed two different sides of Enright being charged with the 2018 murder of his ex-girlfriend Brandon Chicklis. It started with her story of self-defense.

“I kept screaming for him to stop … that was when I pulled my knife off my belt,” Enright said.
Her lawyer showed a picture of the 21-year-old phlebotomist the day she invited Chicklis to meet in a tree house on her family’s estate in Ashburnham, and said she had a surprise for him. That’s when she says he sexually assaulted her.
“I swung my arm. I stabbed him,” she later added. “He was not injured in the beginning. He seemed fine … I think in the end I hit him in the neck. “

She says she ran away and called her boyfriend, who she says helped her hide Chicklis’ body in New Hampshire, discovered a month later.
The prosecutor’s cross-examination showed her in a darker light. She read aloud from her diary. “I just have an insatiable curiosity to kill someone.”
She was referring to a dominatrix company she owned, grave robberies and collecting animal bones and organs, which she said was nothing more than her fixation at the time on the controversial musician Marilyn Manson.
