The murder trial of Claud ‘Tex’ McIver continues in a Georgia courtroom on Thursday. McIver is facing allegations that he intentionally killed his wife Diane McIver on Sept. 25, 2016. Tex McIver admitted that he shot Diane, but insists it was nothing more than an accident.

McIver claims that he was holding a gun for protection while he was sitting in the backseat of a car as he rode with Diane as a friend of theirs was driving through a suspicious neighborhood that he was not familiar with. Diane was seated in the front passenger seat. The defense claims that Tex had fallen asleep, only to wake up suddenly and fire the weapon by accident. This resulted in Diane getting shot through the back of her seat.

Testimony from earlier in trial indicated that before she died, Diane McIver said it was an accident.

In addition to murder, Tex McIver had been accused of witness tampering. On Wednesday, after the prosecution had rested their case, the judge dismissed two counts of attempting to influence witnesses. The judge clarified that McIver did appear to try to influence witnesses Bill Crane and Thomas Carter, but the alleged actions did not violate the statutes that prosecutors used to charge him.
