Jurors hear crime scene details in Woodard trial

HOBART, Okla._Jurors in the Sandra Woodard murder trial heard details about the crime scene, as well as a possible motive during Monday's opening day of testimony. 

Woodard is charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of her boyfriend, Altus radio DJ Harley Moody, in January 2014 in a home in Lone Wolf, Oklahoma. Woodard has admitted to shooting Moody, but said it happened accidentally during a role play sex game. 

Each of the witnesses painted a similar picture of what they saw when they arrived for the 12 members of the jury. Moody's body lying face down on the bathroom floor, covered with a towel and the shower running.

Three of the witnesses recalled a shell casing in the tub and two others on the bathroom floor. They also recounted three children being in the home when the shooting happened.

State Department of Child Protective Services, which was called in to remove the children from the home, provided testimony on the children's behalf. They said interviews with the children revealed Woodard and Moody argued on several occasions, they were also aware of loaded guns in the home. None of the children recalled hearing gunshots the night of the shooting, though officers said televisions were on in each of the kids’ room.

Moody's father and older brothers also took the stand. His father testified that Woodard and his son were in love, but that Moody told him Woodard could be jealous at times. The brothers, who took the reins on taking caring of Moody's estate after his death, said they found notes in drawers written by Moody and Woodard.

Some were love notes, others said things like "I caught you," followed by the name of Moody's ex-girlfriend. That note was said to be in a woman's handwriting.

Testimony for wrapped up just before 5:00 p.m. and will resume Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. The trial is expected to finish by the end of the week.
