Jurors in the Michael Mosley murder trial saw graphic images of the crime scene and heard emotional testimony from the parents of one of the victims. Mosley is accused of stabbing 18-year-old Arica Lynn Schneider and 27-year-old Samuel "Frost" Holley to death back in 2002. Our Sabina Kuriakose has more.

TROY, N.Y. -- Testimony will continue Wednesday morning in the trial against Michael Mosley. Mosley is accused of stabbing 18-year-old Arica Lynn Schneider and 27-year-old Samuel Holley to death back in 2002.

On Wednesday, jurors will hear more testimony from Sam Holley's best friend. He took the stand Tuesday, confirming he used to run drugs with Mosley.

It was an emotional day in court as both of Arica's parents took the stand. Jurors were shown crime scene footage that showed Schneider and Holley stabbed to death, lying in pools of their own blood in their Troy apartment.

Mosley was arrested last spring after DNA testing from a bloody palm print from the scene matched his.

Mosley's defense attorney anyone could have killed Holley, whose street name was "Frost."

There are a number of people and police recognize this, that would want to kill Frost, and kill, eventually he was," said defense attorney Terence Kindlon.

"We have the DNA and the scientific evidence. We're confident, DNA doesn't lie. So we're hoping this is going to come to together and the jury's going to figure out the truth of what happened," said Darcy Lenhardt-Murray, a cousin of Arica Lynn Schneider.

Mosley faces life in prison if convicted.
