We're just learning about deleted texts made between Patricia Maccallum and the husband she's accused of killing... medford man Michael Christopher Maccallum.

DAY 5: Patricia Maccallum stands about 5 foot 6, looking thinner than past photos. She remained stoic as the evidence swirled around her.  She's accused of murdering her husband Michael Christopher Maccallum.

During the proceedings she remains quiet. only asking for a snack, leaving once to use the courthouse restroom.

Today, Siskiyou County forensics expert Bonnie Mortenson continues testimony. Describing how and where at the campsite she found 3 bullets, 4 inches deep in the ground where the tent sat. The same tent his body was found wrapped in...and tossed off a steep cliff.

Mortenson reveals white fibers were found with the bullets, fibers that matched material inside a bullet ridden sleeping bag...furthering the theory he was shot while sleeping.

But it's the testimony of Jackson County cyber crimes Sgt. Colin Fagen that begins to dig into text messages between accused accomplice Amber Lubbers, step-sister Patricia, and dead husband Christopher. Like one from Chris to Patricia... saying "hey ifey! luvs u." Dated November 9th 2012. -incidentally police believe chris was shot the 16th. That text just one of over one thousand on messages on Patricia's phone, including deleted messages now recovered....the rest of the texts not yet revealed...

The prosecution is building their case... just as law enforcement built up evidence leading to Patricia's arrest.

Will this woman be convicted a killer? A decision of that gravity still yet to come in this small white Yreka court room.
