Long Trial- Day 4: Victim's Widow Takes the Stand

The Callie Long trial continues on to day four. She is the woman accused of hitting a man with her car while intoxicated.

On Friday prosecutors called Brett Walrath's widow to the stand. LaKeisha spoke about the last time she spoke to her husband. Brett left the house around 10 p.m. on August 27th, 2003 to go ride bikes. They exchanged an "I love you," and that was the last time Keisha saw her husband conscious. Brett was taken to UMC, he lived for five months and died January 27th, 2004. Keisha was six-and-a-half months pregnant the night of the crash, and delivered a baby boy in December.

The trial continues Monday morning while the prosecution continues trying their case. They are expected to have 9-1-1 tapes as well as testimony from the second driver that hit Walrath the night of the crash.
