"I didn't do it because he was leaving me, Idid it because he was going to take the kids." That's what Julia Surbaugh supposedly told a trooper just before she was arraigned for the murder of her husband in 2009.

However, that's not what she told deputies days before on the day Michael Surbaugh was shot. Just hours after Michael was shot, Julia Surbaugh told Webster County deputies that she was lying in bed with her husband, when he reached for a gun. That's when she apparently fought with him, and the gun went off and hit him in the face.

Just six days after, Surbaugh was arrested for the murder of her husband.

Several other troopers testified about gathering evidence at the crime scene, as well as what Julia had told them in the days after Michael's death.

Several medical professionals gave their testimony this morning about the care that they gave Michael after he was shot up until his death.

A member of the state medical examiner's office also talked about the toxicology report, and said no alcohol or drugs that can be abused were found in his system, just drugs that had been given to him during his treatments.

The state's case will continue Tuesday.

Keep it to 5 News as the trial goes on.
