Cheyenne, WY (AP) - Prosecuting and defense attorneys argued Wednesday over what evidence and testimony to allow during an elderly Missouri woman's first-degree murder trial in Wyoming.
Attorneys for 75-year-old Alice Uden plan to argue self-defense. Prosecutors allege she shot 25-year-old Ronald Holtz in the head while he slept in late 1974 or early 1975.
Jury selection is set to begin Tuesday and eight days are reserved for trial in Cheyenne.
Uden's attorneys want Judge Steven Sharpe to bar jurors from hearing that Uden's current husband, 71-year-old Gerald Uden, killed his ex-wife and her two sons in Wyoming in 1980. Sharpe says he will rule on that at trial.
Gerald Uden pleaded guilty in November. Authorities arrested the Udens in Chadwick, Mo., in September but have not linked the two murder cases.
