The trial of a woman accused of killing her estranged husband last year in Leavenworth is in its second week.

Testimony in the trial of Barbara M. Frantz continued Tuesday in Leavenworth County District Court. District Judge Michael Gibbens said he planned to end Tuesday's session around 8 p.m.

The trial was in recess over the Independence Day holiday, but it should resume today.

Frantz, 52, Kansas City, Kansas, is charged with first-degree murder. She is accused of shooting her estranged husband, Gary, Jan. 27, 2017, in a parking lot outside of the Stove Factory Lofts in downtown Leavenworth.

The defense is arguing that the victim was shot by his son.

The trial began June 25 with jury selection.

Much of the day in the court on Tuesday was devoted to the testimony of a prosecution witness, Tesh St. John, who is a detective with the Leavenworth Police Department.
