Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
6-29-04 - Testimony wrapped up Tuesday in the Kristy Jones murder trial. By Wednesday, the case of the Whitesboro Jeweler Murder will be in the hands of a Grayson County Jury.
On Tuesday, the mother of Kristi Jones testified that her daughter did show remorse after last summer's shooting death of John McCullough. She claims it was self defense.
But the prosecution paints a much different picture. Today they called witnesses who were mutual friends with both the suspect and the victim. They testified that Jones and McCullough actually took a motorcycle ride together months before the shooting.
Both the prosecution and defense will present their closing arguments first thing Wednesday morning.
