The quadruple-murder trial of Florida man Adam Matos continues on Monday. Prosecutors in Pasco County say Matos murdered his ex-girlfriend Megan Brown, her new boyfriend Nicholas Leonard, and her parents Margaret and Gregory Brown in 2014. If convicted, Matos could get the death penalty. Court is expected to begin at 9:30 am ET.
During Friday’s opening statement, prosecutor Bryan Sarabia told the court that Matos first had a domestic dispute with Megan Brown on August 28, 2014, but left when his son woke up. Sarabia said that Matos returned later that day and murdered her and the others. The next day, Sarabia allegedly started selling the Brown family’s belongings, including animals that the family owned.
Monday’s testimony included that of Aaron Brown, Megan’s brother. He told the court about his family. Next, several forensic investigators took the stand describing their investigation of the case, photographs that were taken of the house, and evidence collected, included a hammer that was found in a canal.
