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.
Prosecutors say that Matos first had a domestic dispute with Megan Brown on August 28, 2014, but left when his son woke up. He allegedly returned later that day and murdered her and the others. The next day, Matos allegedly started selling the Brown family’s belongings, including animals that the family owned, before fleeing the scene.
On Tuesday, the jury heard from forensic investigators, and a medical examiner who described the victims’ injuries. The different victims suffered different types of injuries, with Megan and Gregory being shot, Margaret suffering blunt force trauma and asphyxiation, and Nick Leonard having severed blood vessels. All of the bodies had signs of decomposition by the time they were found.
