MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A trial began Monday in Milwaukee for an Army veteran charged in the murder of his wife.
A jury was being picked Monday morning for 29-year-old Keith Brooks. He's accused of shooting his 27-year-old wife Anita to death during an argument in late January of last year.
Brooks told police that his wife shot herself in the head during their argument. A medical examiner said the location of the bullet wound proved that Keith Brooks committed the killing.
He contends that his wife has tried killing herself a number of times in the past.
The judge in the case will allow the jury to hear that claim. The judge also said that jurors can see a video found on the victim's cell phone, which reportedly showed Keith insulting his wife with slurs and epithets.
