For the first time, we're learning the defense attorney's theory in the murder of trial of the woman accused of killing and dismembering her husband.
In day three of the trial, the attorney for 24-year-old Juatasha Denton-McCaster hints the murder of 22-year-old Norman McCaster may have been drug-related.
Multiple witnesses have testified there was no evidence McCaster used drugs, including the pathologist who did his autopsy.
McCaster's Illinois National Guard sergeant also testified his drug tests were all negative.
The defense attorney believes detectives didn't follow all leads, citing an interview transcript with one of McCaster's fellow soldiers, who told investigators the victim smoked marijuana and he saw pills in McCaster's car.
