Jurors for the Seth Techel murder trial got a break on Thursday.  The defense chose to present evidence outside the presence of the jury after the judge ruled it inadmissible because attorneys still wanted it to be part of the record.

Techel is being tried for the shooting death of his wife and unborn child last May. Prosecutors believe he killed his wife so that he could be with another woman.

Wednesday the defense brought Techel’s neighbors to the stand, to try and prove that a problem neighbor killed Lisa Techel.

The neighbor in question named Brian Tate was a schizophrenic who had a history of trouble with the Techel’s. Tate passed away in the fall.

The jury will return Friday for more testimony by the defense.
