SASKATOON – The second week of the murder trial of David Woods, accused of killing his wife Dorothy, started Monday with a focus on text messages.

Last week, court heard from Derrick Brown who admitted to being sexually intimate with Dorothy on Nov. 10, 2011, the day before she was last seen.

He testified he received text messages from her cell phone on Nov. 15, but believed David was the sender, not Dorothy.

Those messages were the focus of Monday’s proceedings.

A 90-minute video was played from 2011 where a police officer interrogates Woods about the messages, repeatedly saying “we know you sent them.”

In the video, Woods never confesses to sending the messages.

The trial resumes Tuesday at Court of Queen’s Bench.
