Only one day into the trial, and the jury has already heard testimony from several key witnesses.

Scott Huss is accused of stabbing his wife to death in their home in April 2007, all while their 8 year-old son watched. Today prosecutors for the first time say she was stabbed almost a dozen times, including her genetalia and breasts.

But Huss' defense team told the jury his wife Yana was caught up in the Russian Mafia. Huss' lawyers believe the evidence will show Huss had nothing to do with the murder.

Huss' mother and brother testified today about what happened in the hours before Yana's body was discovered.

Huss allegedly dropped his 8 year-old off at his grandmother's home in Longwood, Florida before prosecutors say he tried fleeing to Texas, before he was caught in Tallahassee.

The eight year old will not be in person to testify at the trial, but the jury will get to hear his story. They took his deposition via video, which jurors will get to see this week.

The couple met on a Russian dating website.
