Son testifies at trial of Missouri woman, 75, accused of killing husband in Wyoming in 1970s

Jurors in Cheyenne, Wyoming, heard emotional testimony Friday from one of the sons of an elderly Missouri woman standing trial on a charge of first-degree murder.

Todd Scott, of Casper, testified Alice Uden, of Chadwick, Missouri, once told him she shot 25-year-old Ronald Holtz as he slept in the mid-1970s. Scott said the confession haunted him for years.

He then turned to his now 75-year-old mother and said, "I hate you."

Uden's attorneys argue Uden killed Holtz, her third husband, in defense of herself and her 2-year-old daughter.

Authorities arrested Alice Uden and her current husband, 71-year-old Gerald Uden, last fall. Gerald Uden has pleaded guilty and is serving life in prison for killing his ex-wife and her two children in central Wyoming in 1980.

Investigators haven't linked the two cases.
