MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee man accused of killing his wife was serving in Afghanistan when he suspected that she was cheating on him.
That's what a jury was told Tuesday as the trial of 29-year-old Keith Brooks got underway.
The Army veteran is charged with battery and homicide in the death of 27-year-old Anita Brooks in January of last year.
Defense lawyer John Moore said it was Anita who shot and killed herself as she was about to leave him for good. Assistant District Attorney Kevin Shomin countered that Brooks' behavior and the scientific evidence would show that he indeed shot her to death.
When testimony began, jurors heard Brooks' 911 call to police after the shooting in which the defendant was crying and screaming -- and his young daughter could be heard in the background.
