ORLANDO, Fla. — Prosecutors rested their case Monday and Markeith Loyd spent hours on the stand testifying in his murder trial.
Loyd has been charged with first-degree murder in the December 2016 shooting death of Sade Dixon, his pregnant ex-girlfriend.
Officials said Loyd fatally shot Orlando police Lt. Debra Clayton in January 2017 to avoid capture, but that case will be tried separately.
Loyd, who was fitted with a stun cuff, testified Monday that he was addicted to Facebook and often livestreamed videos of himself on the social media platform.
Watch raw footage of Loyd's testimony below:
He described to his lawyer what he looks for in a woman.
"What you got to offer to a relationship? What your credit score is?" Loyd said during testimony.
He said he met Dixon through Facebook after she sent him a friend request.
Defense attorneys played several videos of Loyd and Dixon recorded weeks before her death, including one of them joking with one another while lying in bed.
Dixon was seeking recommendations for a hairstylist in the Facebook Live video.
Dixon's mother closed her eyes and listened to her daughter's voice while the videos were played, and Loyd swiveled back and forth in a chair while on the stand.
