Investigators Take The Stand In Day Two Of A Marshall Co. Murder Trial

MARSHALL CO., Ala. (WHNT) -- Wednesday marks Day Two of the murder trial for a man accused of killing another in 2009.

The jury heard investigator statements and saw video from the scene. The family of the man who was killed, Rick Moody, waited outside the courtroom while the video was shown to the jury.

As each investigator took the stand and relayed what they found on October 23, 2009, the man accused of killing Moody sat and listened along with the jury of his peers.

The prosecution is arguing Wesley Claude Burgess killed Moody in a Claysville business. Investigators say it took more than a year to arrest Burgess. The prosecution says there's evidence to believe he's the only suspect in this case.

Burgess is being tried for murder and not capital murder. Officials say that means if he is found guilty he could face up to life in prison.

Thursday officials say they expect to hear from forensics about what DNA evidence was found at the scene.
