Canandaigua, N.Y. - The defense is set to take over in Ontario County Court today in the murder trial of Rose Chase.
Prosecutors say Chase killed her husband Adam by pushing him down some stairs inside the couples home in Stanley. She is alleged to have kept his body in the basement before dismembering him and taking the body parts to her mother's property in Yates County where they say she attempted to burn it.
Chase maintains his death was an accident.
If convicted, she could spend the rest of her life in prison.
