Trial nears end for husband accused of pressuring wife to kill

Testimony could wrap up today in the case against Timothy Humphrey, who is charged with orchestrating a 2003 murder committed by his young wife.

Humphrey, 39, could face the death penalty if convicted of pressuring his wife, Ashley, into shooting Sandee Rozzo in Pinellas Park. Rozzo, 37, was a former friend of Timothy Humphrey's who had accused him of sexual assault. The murder occurred one day after Timothy Humphrey and Ashley, then 20, married.

The murder trial, which began last week, featured Ashley Humphrey testifying against her husband. In a deal with prosecutors, she agreed to a 25-year prison sentence in exchange for her testimony. Attorneys could begin closing arguments today.
