PUNTA GORDA, Fla- Early this morning before the jury even walks in prosecutors drop a bombshell on the defense team. AN alleged phone call Scott Huss made to his oldest son the day of his wife's murder is more important than anyone realized.
Prosecutors say Jeremy Huss told them just last night about a phone conversation he had with his father in the hours before Yana Huss' body was discovered. The jury hasn't heard what Scott Huss allegedly told his son, but the judge says it's a big deal.
"It's almost a confession if you will," said Judge John Dommerich.
Huss' defense team was blindsided by the evidence.
A judge agreed to let Huss' lawyers question his oldest son tomorrow before he gives his testimony to the court. That could add to a mounting list of evidence against Scott Huss.
A forensic analyst specializing in footprints, told the jury the bloody sockprints around Yana's dead body, in his opinion, probably belonged to Scott Huss.
His testimony goes against Huss' defense. His lawyers say a Russian moblord slashed Yana to death while his 8 year-old son Peter looked on.
