Vaughn Ross Trial Continues

It is day two in the double-murder trial of Vaughn Ross. Ross is charged with capital murder for the deaths of, Texas Tech Library Dean Douglas Birdsall and Viola Ross-McVade on January 30th of last year.

Tuesday the jury got their first look at startling evidence in the gruesome murder case. The state and defense presented photographs from the crime scene, bloody graphic pictures of both victims. The jury unsure how to re-act looked at the victims' families to see how they reacted.

The pictures were projected on to a big screen to truly depict the way the bodies were found. The pictures also showed broken glass and where all it was found, as well as spattered and smeared blood in several places.

Sixteen people have testified in this case so far, but the trial continues on Wednesday. The state is seeking the death penalty.
