Jurors in the Michael Peterson murder trial in Durham viewed more than 70 pieces of evidence taken from the novelist's home the night his wife died.
Police evidence technician Dan George spent the morning in Durham Superior Court introducing items taken from Peterson's house. He showed clothing that family members wore the night of the death, wine glasses, strands of hair and blood found on a cola can.
Peterson is charged with murder in the December 2001 death of his wife Kathleen. Police say she was beaten to death and prosecutors say she was killed so her husband could collect an insurance policy. Peterson says his wife died in an accidental fall on back steps in their home.
