WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A woman tells jurors in the trial of a man accused of killing an abortion provider that she heard a popping sound and saw Dr. George Tiller fall to the floor.

Kathy Wegner said Friday that the assailant ran out of the church and she went to call 911.

Prosecutors displayed a graphic photo of Tiller, showing him lying on the ground wearing a green business suit and cowboy boots. Blood covered most of his face and pooling under his head.

Scott Roeder of Kansas City, Mo., is charged with premeditated, first-degree murder for shooting Tiller on May 31.

Prosecutors began presenting their case after making their opening statements. Roeder’s attorneys will make their opening statement until they begin presenting their case. The trial is expected to last two weeks.
