Prosecutors contend Amber Hilberling intentionally shoved her husband to his death and on Thursday called police detectives who testified they saw no signs of a struggle in the couple's apartment.

Prosecutors also introduced a pair of crime scene photos showing a green canvas duffel bag packed and standing in the living room and a picture of the couples' closet. Half of the clothes were gone, and the items that were left appeared to be blouses and other women's clothing.

A detective testified Thursday that the luggage in the living room contained men's clothes, some of Joshua Hilberling's documents, a DVD player and some DVDs.

Prosecutors rested their case late Thursday.
