SARASOTA COUNTY - Testimony continues today in the murder trial of a Venice man accused of killing his girlfriend and a neighbor.

John Lee is accused in the murders of Traci Nabergall and Jason Salter during an argument at Salter's home.

On Monday, jurors examined phone records which show Lee contacted Nabergall several times the day she was killed, despite being ordered by a judge to leave her alone.

If convicted, Lee could face the death penalty.
