Prosecution Rests In Orthodontist Murder Trial

Borukhova's two-day cross-examination ended Thursday

All sides have rested in the case of a local doctor accused of having her orthodontist husband murdered.
Mazultov Borukhova's two-day cross-examination ended Thursday. She's being tried with the man who prosecutors say she hired to commit the crime.
The prosecution played the 911 tape made moments after Borukhova's husband, Dr. Daniel Malakov, was slain. Borukhova can be heard sobbing on the tape, but she's given no details to police, which prosecutors claim strengthens their case against her.
The murder took place less than a week after a custody tug-of-war over the couple's daughter.
Closing arguments are scheduled to begin Friday morning.
