TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Opening statements are underway in the trial of a Tucson woman accused of killing her ex-husband with a car bomb.

Prosecutors say Pamela Phillips hired a hit man to plant the bomb in Gary Triano's car in 1996.

The bomb exploded in the parking lot of the La Paloma Country Club in the foothills.

Prosecutors say Phillips was after Triano's $2 million life insurance policy.

Tucson News Now's Barbara Grijalva is in the courtroom. She will have the latest on KOLD News 13 at 4, 5 and 6, and can be followed on Twitter at @BGrijalvaKOLD.
