Guam - Although the AG's Office believes it has a strong case against accused murderer Allan Agababa, the defense has filed a motion opposing the government's key witness, Bobby Hall. Hall is anticipated to testify that Agababa stated he had an inheritance issue and wanted to know where he could get a gun with a silencer or chemicals.

In defense attorney Randy Cunliffe's motion he states Bobby Hall is believed to be a convicted felon and that discovery doesn't specifically state that Agababa had intentions to kill his mother.

It was back in August 2013 Shelly Bernstein was found dead in her Tamuning apartment. Prior to her death, Agababa is alleged to have made inquiries with her employer about her death benefits.

Jury trial and selection gets underway tomorrow.
