TULSA, Okla. - The prosecution has rested in the 2nd degree murder trial of Amber Hilberling, the woman accused of pushing her husband to his death from their 25th floor apartment at the University Club Tower apartments.
The defense is expected to begin their case in the morning. The judge told jurors to anticipate beginning their deliberations on Monday.
Before resting their case, prosecutors showed an hour-long video of Amber Hilberling and her grandmother in a police interview room waiting to be questioned by detectives. In the video, Amber can be heard saying things like, "I killed him" and "I feel so guilty."
Amber's grandmother is heard coaching Amber about what not to say. The grandmother repeatedly instructs Amber to refuse to answer questions until a lawyer arrives to represent her.
In other testimony, Tulsa Police detectives told jurors that the couple's apartment was immaculate and showed no signs of a domestic dispute or struggle other than a broken window.
Det. Jeff Helton told jurors that Josh Hilberling had his bags packed and that investigators did not see any of his clothing in drawers or closets.
Jurors also saw graphic images of Josh's injuries during testimony from the forensic pathologist that performed the autopsy on Josh's body.
A former cellmate of Amber's, Bonnie Fulton, who testified that Amber told her "I killed the bastard."
Hilberling rejected a plea deal offered by prosecutors last week. She faces 10 years to life in prison if convicted of second-degree murder.
