The murder trial of a Martinez woman began Wednesday and will continue Thursday.
Yvette Taylor, 47, is charged with murder in the February 2012 death of her roommate, Theodore Crew, 63.
Taylor called authorities early on the morning of Feb. 11. She told the dispatcher, "When I woke up this morning, my friend was dead."
But first responders found a bloody scene inside the Applecross Apartments residence.
"Throughout this apartment from the very entrance, there was blood everywhere," District Attorney Ashley Wright said.
