ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The murder trial of a Leesburg man, accused of shooting his wife and then buying beer as an alibi, continued Wednesday with several GBI Crime Lab experts testifying.

Prosecutors say 46 year old Ronnie Faircloth shot and killed his wife of 27 years, 42 year old Norma Faircloth, at her Nottingham North Apartment in September 2007.

Wednesday crime lab experts testified that blood found on Faircloth's jeans and boots was his wife's, and ballistics experts testified that the gun fishermen found in Lake Chehaw 13 months later was the murder weapon.

Tuesday first responders testified that Faircloth was drinking beer when they arrived at the murder scene, and they had to keep him from going after another one in the kitchen where his wife lay dead.
