Testimony is under way in the trial of a Jefferson County woman accused of beating her husband to death.

55-year-old Susan DeJong is charged with first-degree
murder and use of a weapon to commit a felony in the death of
52-year-old Thomas DeJong at their home west of Fairbury in March
2011.

CountyAttorney Linda Bauer told jurors Tuesday that Susan DeJong became obsessed with suspicions that her husband was having an affair. Defense attorney James Mowbray says the evidence doesn't mean that it's proof of the charges against DeJong.

The trial in Fairbury is expected to last through the week.
