SCOTTSBURG, Ind. (WDRB) -- The first witness has finally taken the stand in the trial of a southern Indiana man accused of murdering his ex-wife. The prosecution and defense attorneys later gave their opening statements in the trial of Robert Petty.
Petty is accused of murdering his ex-wife and dumping her body back in August 2010.
The prosecutor stated this case is about the events following the alleged murder of Nina Keown, and continued to reference how Petty misled police and family about Keown's whereabouts for three weeks in August of 2010 as she, "rotted away on a hillside."
The couple had been separated for about a year and were trying to reconnect when they attended a concert where a mystery phone call prompted an argument. That argument, police say Petty admitted to them, led to him choking his ex-wife at their home.
The defense stated they believe Petty was unaware Nina Keown was dead following that altercation and they would find him innocent and not guilty of intentionally killing anyone.
Both sides are paying close attention to the sequence of events on Aug. 7.
Families on either side declined comment.
The first witness took the stand Wednesday afternoon -- a trooper from Indiana State Police. The case is expected to close for the day following that testimony.
