SAN ANGELO, Texas -- The capital murder trial of Mark Norwood continues in San Angelo.
Norwood is accused in the beating death of Christine Morton in 1986.
Monday testimony centered on evidence collected in the case of another woman that was beaten to death. The judge allowed the testimony because of the similarities of the deaths.
According to the Austin American-Statesman, an Austin Police Department analyst testified that hairs found at the murder scene of Debra Baker were collected from bath towels. One matched Norwood.
Baker was beaten to death two years after Christine Morton's murder.
On a side note, the hairs in the Baker murder were also tested against the hairs of two suspects in Austin's notorious yogurt shop murders, but there was no match there.
