Closing arguments underway for woman accused of killing her husband

Closing arguments underway in woman accuse of killing her husband

LEE COUNTY, AL (WTVM) - A jury could soon deliver a verdict in the murder trial of a Lee County wife accused of running over her husband, who was a Fort Benning soldier.

Closing arguments are underway and the jury will consider four possible verdicts including not guilty, guilty of murder, manslaughter and criminality neglect homicide.

According to the 911 tape, Tiffany Andrews did not testify in her own defense. The jury did hear a testimony from the defense that Andrews called 911, but the call was never played.

That was a blow to the defense as they tried to convince this jury that Andrews was following her husband. They also wanted to convince the jury that Andrews saw her husband, Michael Andrews, crash his motorcycle on July 1, 2012.

Andrews broke down sobbing in court as she listened to the 911 call that was played outside the presence of the jury.

She can be heard crying on and off frantically telling dispatchers that her husband was in an accident at their location.

Prosecutors told the jury that the damage to Andrews' car proved she ran over her husband. It also could have proved that her motive was to collect her husband's insurance money because he was going to divorce her.

It will soon be up to a jury to make the ultimate decision and of course News Leader 9 will bring you the verdict as soon as it becomes available.
