The first degree murder trial of Melonie Smith entered its fourth day on Thursday. Smith also is charged with destruction of evidence.
Bingham County Prosecuting Attorney Cleve Colson used Thursday to "flesh out" murder victim David Lee Davis, 30, and the people and circumstances around his death.
Presiding Judge Darren Simpson is exploring the possibility of jurors coming in on Saturday, Sunday or Monday to finish the trial. It is anticipated the state will finish its case about noon on Friday; the defense should begin its case during the afternoon.
The trial continues at 8:30 a.m. on Friday.
