Trial continues for man accused of killing ex-girlfriend and 3 others

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (WFLA) – The second week of the Adam Matos trial in Pasco County went for hours Monday with attorneys presenting a lot of evidence.

Matos is the man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend, her parents and her new boyfriend back in 2014.

Investigators said he murdered the family in gruesome style, then ordered pizza and sold the family’s dogs on Craigslist.

On Monday, a Pasco County Sheriff’s Office forensics technician told the jury how she found two Papa John’s pizza boxes in the Hudson home after the murders.

The son of Margaret and Gregory Brown took the stand Monday morning as well.  He talked about guns found in a canal that may’ve belonged to his father.

Photographs of guns, cleaning supplies, the family home and the neighborhood were also shown to jurors.

The trial is expected to last three weeks.
