Trial begins for woman accused of killing husband, boyfriend in different states

A trial is underway in Minnesota for a woman accused of killing her ex-husband in Minnesota and her boyfriend in Wisconsin.

Angelina O'Mara, 39, is charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of James O'Mara of Sauk Rapids, Minn. He was found dead last November in his apartment with a gunshot wound to the head.

The next day, police in Ashland found the body of the woman's boyfriend, 36-year-old Michael Pies in a motel room. The defendant is charged with first-degree intentional homicide for that slaying.

Authorities say her Wisconsin case won't begin until her current Minnesota case is wrapped up.
