Trial of man who allegedly shot wife's boss is underway
The murder trial in the death of attorney Emmett Corrigan began Wednesday morning with opening statements by the prosecution. The prosecuting attorney said that Robert Hall's wife Kandi had been having an affair with Corrigan, and they both planned to leave their spouses.
They allege that Hall went to the Walgreens parking lot March 11, 2011 with the purpose of finding his wife and Corrigan, and that the shooting was not self defense. The prosecution said that Hall shot Corrigan in the head and heart at "close range" and then put the gun to his own head, grazing himself.
The defense opted not to give opening statements. After the prosecution was finished, the first witness, a law enforcement official who was at Walgreens the night of the shooting, took the stand.
