Morrow murder trial begins
Two and a half years from the morning Amanda Morrow was shot and left to die on a neighbor’s front porch steps, the man accused of her murder is now standing trial.
Michael David Morrow, 42, is accused of choking and then shooting his estranged wife Amanda Morrow, who was 39, in the head in the early morning hours of Oct. 16, 2010.
Amanda Morrow's mother, Dorothy "Dottie" Smith, called 9-1-1 shortly after midnight after receiving a phone call from her daughter saying Morrow was blocking her driveway. She heard arguing and, "Mike, what are you doing?" and then a dial tone.
Detectives began searching for the two and eventually found Michael Morrow lying on his bed at his home with a cocked revolver at his side.
Amanda Morrow's lifeless body was found on a neighbor's porch later that morning....
