Gould Trial Trial Continues Thursday

The first day of witness testimony in the trial of a former Marine accused of trying to kill his pregnant wife wrapped up Wednesday.

Assistant District Attorney Mike Maulsby described how authorities say Jonathan Gould hit his wife over the head with a hammer.

Gould's Attorney, William Morgan says it didn't happen that way and that Gould was baited into confessing to the crime.

Several first responders took the stand to give their accounts of that December night.

The trial picks back up Thursday morning at 10.

Erin Gould could testify as early as Thursday.
