MACON, Ga.-- A jury found Jasento Flowers guilty on all counts in the murder of his wife.

Flowers' daughter Tiaro Moore testified Monday she was in the van during the murder.

"he grabbed a gun then he shot it", said Moore.

The prosecutor asked more if the bullet hit anyone.

Moore replied, It hit my momma and she fell. After he shot her I jumped to the front".

Bridgette Flowers' son Deontress Moore testified he spoke to Jasento Flowers on the phone shortly after the murder.

"He laughed. He said 'I killed her'. To him it was just a laughing matter", Moore said.

Some of the witnesses contradicted their earlier statements.

The prosecution also showed surveillance video of flowers knocking bridgette unconscious at a Walmart on Valentine's day 2014, proof they say of a violent relationship.
