GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - The third day of testimony in the murder trial for Matthew Leili revealed accusations of abuse.
His ex-wife testified about her own abuse. "He would like to wrestle," Joanne Lucie said. "If he got mad, he’d hit a wall behind me or come this way, hit something." Years later, in 2011, Matthew's next wife, Nique, was killed.
The group of co-workers who participated in a search after she went missing testified they'd suspected Nique was a victim of domestic violence.
One testified that he thought Matt was a "wife beater." Another said, "She wore turtlenecks in the summer, which I found strange."
Derek Simpson said he was the first to spot Nique's dead body under leaves and twigs. He said he recognized her hair.
