Duling, 40, is on trial this week in Hillsborough County Superior Court in Nashua on two alternate counts of second-degree murder. He faces up to life in prison if he is convicted.
Jurors spent the morning watching video footage of a bloody, cluttered kitchen where McGrade was found stabbed to death in her Wilton home on April 18, 2008.
On the morning after the murder, state police searched the home, where prosecutors say Duling killed his 35-year-old wife after the two argued about him taking a trip to London with a male friend.
State police testified that they found spots of blood sprinkled throughout the kitchen floor and a nearby telephone while searching the home and collecting evidence the day after the murder.
"It's evident to me that someone at least pushed the nine and the one because the nine and the one are red," State Police Sgt. Scott Gilbert testified.
Testimony by investigators focused on the position of McGrade's body and the blood that ran throughout the kitchen.
The video showed pools of blood surrounded McGrade's body. Both legs were at a 45-degree angle, her head face down on the floor.
