BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

There was graphic testimony Thursday morning in the murder trial of Dominique Smith, as a BREC employee described finding the bodies of the two victims in a Zachary park.

Smith is accused of cutting the throats of three people, including his own daughter, who survived.

Law enforcement officers and the coroner also took the stand Thursday. Officials plan to visit the scene where it all happened later in the day.

Smith's daughter testified against her father by video Wednesday. She told the prosecutor her dad and a lady cut her mom's neck, but she wasn't sure which one it was.

The other woman, Trindel Mathews, has pleaded guilty and agreed to testify against Smith.
