Testimony continues Friday in the capital murder trial of a Dothan man accused of killing his wife.
Forty-nine-year-old Michael Sale was originally charged with domestic violence after his wife was taken to a hospital in critical condition nearly two years ago.
Telephone records show sale called for an ambulance, but by then 48-year-old Lynn Sale was so weak she had to be placed on life support.
Authorities say the woman had been tied up so tightly for so long that she developed gangrene. She died two weeks later.
Sale spent time in prison for assaulting the woman a few years earlier.
District attorney Doug Valeska contends that sale beat the victim and held her against her will for more than a month.
He told jurors revenge was the motive for the crime. Testimony in the case continues Monday at the Houston County courthouse.
