More testimony is expected this morning in Alachua county circuit court from Erika Friman, the former girlfriend of Pedro Bravo and Christian Aguilar.
Bravo is accused of killing Aguilar in part because he started dating Friman and Bravo wanted her back.
Friman was called to the stand yesterday and said she did not plan on dating Bravo after high school.
As testimony went on, prosecutors detailed how Bravo strangled Aguilar and drove his body to a wooded area.
Defense attorneys say the two men did fight, but that Bravo did not kill Aguilar.
