Phillips trial enters second week

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Testimony resumed Tuesday in Pima County Superior Court as the Pamela Phillips murder trial entered its second week.

Phillips is accused of first degree murder and conspiracy in the 1996 car bomb killing of her ex-husband, Gary Triano.

Prosecutors said Phillips hired a hit man to plant the bomb that killed Triano in the parking lot of La Paloma Country Club in order to collect on a $2 million life insurance policy.

Phillips' attorneys claim it could have been someone else because Triano owed money to many different people.
