Testimony continued Thursday morning in the Moss murder trial. Testimony continued Thursday morning in the Moss murder trial.

Testimony resumed Thursday in the Zakkawanda Moss murder trial.

Moss faces six counts of first-degree murder. Moss and another man stand accused of killing five people and an unborn child in Lincoln County, Tennessee, and Madison County, Alabama, in October 2012.

Thursday, the prosecution showed video from two different stores: the Walmart off Sparkman Drive, and the Wavaho gas station store near Alabama A&M University.

In both videos, the prosecution points to a man, allegedly Moss, walking in, going to the ATM, and leaving the store. In the surveillance video from the Wavaho, a woman walks in and stands next to him.

An employee from both the Walmart and the Wavaho testified that the video was in fact from the early morning hours after the alleged murders.

Also called to the stand Thursday was a woman from Huntsville's waste collection service company and the plant that turns that waste into steam. The prosecution did not make it clear why they were brought to testify.

One of the workers did testify that finding something in particular in the waste would be like finding a needle in a haystack. Again, they did not mention any specific evidence during that part of the testimony.

The prosecution spent hours questioning the investigator who found Jessica Brown's body.

He testified that he was given an order from the sheriff to bust down the door of Brown's home after no one came to the door. He said he found Brown dead in the bathtub face-down, with her hands tied behind her back. The investigator then said he then found Brown's seven-week old baby in a separate bathroom. Her child survived.

He also testified about talking with the unnamed witness who testified earlier this week to driving Moss and Burrell around the night of the murders. He said that witness took investigators on the exact route she drove that night.

Also called to the stand was a man who found and picked up a loaded magazine on the side of the Flint River Bridge. The man testified that a glove was used to pick up the clip before police were called. He said the clip had hollow-point 9mm rounds in it.

This is a key point for the prosecution, because those were the type of bullets used in the murders.

Several other deputies were called to the stand as well, testifying about collecting evidence the prosecution said will connect Moss to the murders.
