Opening statements begin in Keith Smith trial; 2 jurors dismissed

Keith Smith showed no emotion as a prosecutor and her witnesses explicitly described the stabbing death of his wife, Jacquelyn Smith. In her opening statements, prosecutor Shaundria Hanna provided a possible motive. Detectives were able to get a wiretap for Keith Smith's phone and learned that he moved to Florida and that there was an insurance policy on Jacquelyn Smith. Police also discovered through the wiretap that Keith Smith looked into whether he needed a passport to flee to Mexico, the Virgin Islands or Canada. Texas Rangers captured Keith Smith and his daughter, Valeria Smith, about 20 minutes away from the Mexico border.
