MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Prosecutors are asking a judge to reject a string of motions filed by attorneys for an Alabama man charged with murder in the scuba-diving death of his wife during a honeymoon trip to Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
Defense attorneys have asked a Jefferson County judge to dismiss capital murder charges against Gabe Watson because he already as
pleaded guilty to a lesser charge in Australia. But the state wants the judge to send Watson to trial in the death of 26-year-old Tina Watson.
Prosecutors also want jurors to see a videotaped recreation of what they believe happened when the woman drowned during a honeymoon dive. The defense is trying to stop jurors from seeing the tape.
A judge will rule on the requests before Watson's trial, set for May 23.
