Jury hears suspect's statements admitting to stabbing her husband

Testimony is continuing in the murder trial of Hope Fitzhugh, who is accused of stabbing her husband, Gregory, at their home in 2009.

The jury at the Hancock County Courthouse heard two separate audio tape statements by Fitzhugh, claming she stabbed her husband during a fight.

They also watched a video of 6-year-old Faith Fitzhugh, who was in the house with her 1 1/2-year sister, Charity at the time of the stabbing.

"Mommy was crying. She thought Daddy was still alive," the child said on the video.

The trial is expected to continue the rest of the week.
