ADA asks to show photos at Wayland man's trial

Posted: Updated:

WOBURN (AP) — Prosecutors have asked a judge to allow them to show graphic, close-up shots of a victim's wounds to the jury in the trial of a Wayland man charged with killing his ex-girlfriend.

The prosecutor in the trial of Nathaniel Fujita (foo-JEE'-tuh) told a judge Monday that showing the photos is necessary to show that the victim suffered "distinct and separate" wounds.

The 20-year-old Fujita has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the July 2011 death of Lauren Astley. Both were 18 and had just graduated from Wayland High School.

Prosecutors say Astley was beaten, strangled and stabbed, and suffered one "jagged and gaping" throat wound.

The MetroWest Daily News (http://bit.ly/Wd1aHQ ) reports that Fujita's lawyer said he may not object to "some" photos being shown. The judge did not immediately rule.
