WATCH: Adam Matos Quadruple Murder Trial Day 6

The quadruple-murder trial of Adam Matos continues in Pasco County, Florida. Prosecutors say Matos murdered his ex-girlfriend Megan Brown, her new boyfriend Nicholas Leonard, and her parents Margaret and Gregory Brown in 2014. If convicted, Matos could get the death penalty. Court is expected to begin at 9:30 am ET.

Prosecutors say that Matos first had a domestic dispute with Megan Brown on August 28, 2014, but left when his son woke up. He allegedly returned later that day and murdered her and the others. The next day, Matos allegedly started selling the Brown family’s belongings, including animals that the family owned, before fleeing the scene.

Court was not in session on Friday. On Thursday, the jury heard from several witnesses, included multiple people who responded to Craigslist ads that Matos allegedly posted online. They described their interactions with Matos, identifying his phone number as being attached to the ad, and those who ended up going to the house and meeting Matos were able to identify him in court. One witness, Paige Steele, said she still has the dog that she bought from Matos for just $50, when they would normally go for $200.
