NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) - The Northern Kentucky murder trial gaining national attention resumes Monday with the defense of Shayna Hubers.
 
Her lawyers are expected to begin laying out their self-defense case in the 2012 shooting death of her boyfriend, Ryan Poston.

Throughout the trial, which started last week, Campbell County prosecutors painted a picture of a woman scorned by an on-again, off-again relationship.

On Monday, Sharon Hubers, Shayna's mother, took the stand to testify in the defense of her daughter.

" I was uh...frightened for Shayna, this mans almost 30-years-old she's 19," Sharon said.

The case is expected to take weeks.
 
So far, jurors have heard from Hubers' former and current inmates at the county jail, Poston's parents, and thousands of text messages between the couple.
 
It is still unclear if if Hubers will take the stand in her own defense.
 
FOX19 NOW will be at the Campbell County Courthouse when proceedings resume by 9 a.m.. Watch for updates throughout the day.
