ELLSWORTH, Maine (AP) - The mother of Hilary Saenz is testifying in the trial of Saenz’s husband, who is charged with killing her on Christmas Day 2013 in Maine.

Prosecutors say Christopher Saenz fatally beat Hilary Saenz because he felt she having an affair. WABI-TV reports Hilary Saenz’s mother, Kathy Brown, says she normally had regular contact with her daughter but hadn’t heard from her for three weeks prior to her Christmas. Brown says her daughter seemed off when they talked on Christmas. She says the next call she got was from Christopher Saenz informing her that Hilary was dead.

An autopsy of Hilary Saenz revealed multiple injuries including a lacerated liver, bruised lungs, fractured sternum and brain bleeding.

A judge is hearing testimony without a jury at the request of the defendant.
