Testimony continues Friday in Woodruff trial

Hunt County – Testimony continues today in the murder trial of Brandon Dale Woodruff.

Hunt County Sheriff's Investigator Tommy Grandfield was one of the first on the scene where the bodies of Dennis and Norma Woodruff were found inside their Royse City home in Oct., 2005.

Grandfield testified Thursday, during the first day of testimony, that the Woodruffs were discovered sitting next to one another on a couch in their living, next to a television which was still on. He indicated there was a lot of blood around the bodies.

The prosecution argued Dennis Woodruff was shot once, then stabbed nine times, while Norma Woodruff was shot as many as five times.

Brandon Woodruff has pleaded not guilty to the crime. If convicted, he faces an automatic sentence of life in prison.
