Tuesday, jurors in Boone County heard from Warren Smith Moore, Michael Moore's brother.

Moore's brother lives in South Carolina and he told the jury about the night he learned his parents had been shot to death.
He also testified about a phone conversation he had with his younger brother, right after the killings.
