Prosecution Rests in Decatur in Tipton Slaying

DECATUR, Ala. (AP) - The prosecution has rested in the third
trial of a man charged with killing the wife of a north Alabama
psychiatrist in their Decatur home a decade ago.

State attorneys finished presenting their capital murder case against Daniel Wade Moore on Wednesday.

The judge turned down a request to end the case because of a lack of evidence, and the defense began calling witnesses to testify about the murder of Karen Tipton in 1999. The woman was found dead in her home.

Moore's first trial ended in a conviction and death sentence, but the verdict was thrown out on appeal. His second trial ended in a hung jury last year.
