Jurors also heard from Peter Shalen, Yana Huss' son.
He was 8-years-old when his mother was murdered.

Peter told prosecutors he watched Scott Huss stab his mother repeatedly.
He says Huss told him to wait in the bathroom, but he didn't listen when he heard his mother screaming.
He told prosecutors Huss made him get in the car before driving him to his grandmother's house.
Peter says he was in shock and didn't tell anyone what happened because he was "shaking too hard".
Just minutes after the state rested it's case, Huss himself took the stand.
He claims a Russian moblord killed his wife.
Huss says his wife filed several restraining orders against him for know reason.
He testified he believes someone was directing her to do it.
