Double murder trial underway
The trial is underway in the case of a Floyd County man charged with double murder.
Family members say it all began over a property dispute and ended with Berry Hall killing his niece and her husband. Hall's family members who witnessed the shooting say they had several arguments with their neighbors in the time they lived there, and one day things went too far.
Hall's defense attorneys say it's not a question of who did it, but why, and if Hall was in his right mind when the shooting occurred. Hall sat expressionless looking at the floor as his family members told the jury what happened that day. Defense attorneys say Hall was mentally ill at the time because he was in a deep depression for being out of work for a long period of time. The prosecution is seeking the death penalty against Hall.
