New City murder victim's family sees graphic crime scene video

Posted: Updated:

The prosecution called its first witness Friday in the trial against an illegal immigrant accused of killing a New City housewife.

Ronald Douglas Herrera-Castellanos is accused of raping, stabbing and strangling Mary Nagle inside her own home. Nagle?s family watched as graphic crime scene photographs and videos were shown. The prosecution says Herrera was power washing the Nagle?s deck, when he snuck into her home and brutally attacked her in April 2005.

Herrera?s attorney has not indicated whether he will take the stand. He faces life in prison without parole.
