EL PASO- Gruesome crime scene video played out in court today in the murder trial of Chris Sanchez. He's the man accused of killing Leah Leggett, his common-law wife.
Several witnesses took the stand today as the prosecution tried to build its case against Chris Sanchez. But it was a video that stole the show today in court.
A gory video of the crime scene was shown to jurors today, shot just hours after Leah Leggett's death. Her body was seen lying in a pool of blood, as prosecutors presented the forensic evidence in the case.
Bloody clothes with bullet holes were shown, as police discussed their findings. The court also heard testimony from a friend and neighbor of Leggett's.
She testified that Leggett told her Sanchez scared her, and was abusive in the relationship.
We also found out that six months before her death, Leah Leggett filed a criminal trespassing complaint against Sanchez, banning him from her property.
The trial resumes tomorrow.
