Monday will start the second week of Vernon Huser’s first-degree murder trial.
Huser is accused of hiring a man to kill his ex-wife’s boyfriend, Lance Morningstar, back in 2004. Louis Woolheater, the man Huser is accused of hiring, is serving a life in prison sentence for killing Morningstar.
Huser was originally convicted but appealed the conviction and was given a new trial.
Huser’s defense said the state has no physical evidence that links him to Morningstar’s death. The prosecution said Huser did not hide the fact that he wanted someone to kill Morningstar.
