A new turn in the murder case against Whitewater Widow Miriam Helmick.

Prosecutors have filed a motion saying she not only killed her husband Alan, but that she killed her first husband in Florida seven years ago.

Fifty two-year–old Helmick’s first husband was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head, but it was ruled a suicide.

But the District Attorney’s office says there’s evidence it was a murder.

It’s just one of several pieces of evidence prosecutors want to show a jury in the November trial.

The defense filed its own motions trying to throw out charges and testimony, including an attempted murder charge from an arson case in Delta.

In that case, Miriam Helmick is accused of trying to kill Alan Helmick by lighting his car on fire just months before he was found dead.

Both sides have until the end of the month to answer the motions, then a judge will decide whether or not to include them in the five week trial.
