Stanley testified that while he didn’t know Gaul very well, he seemed to be having problems, the newspaper reports.

“I could tell he just wasn’t in a good place in his life,” said Stanley. “He was losing weight.”

Prosecutors charge that Gaul became obsessed with Emma after she broke up with him following a tumultuous on-and-off two-year-relationship, allegedly stalking her in the weeks before he shot her.

Defense: Gaul Shot Walker in Botched ‘Coming to Her Rescue’ Plot

During opening statements last Tuesday, Knox County Assistant District Attorney Kevin Allen called Gaul a “premeditated cold-hearted killer,” the Associated Press reports, saying he shot Emma because he was enraged that she had broken up with him permanently.

“On paper, everything looked great,” Allen said, the AP reports. “She’s the cheerleader. He’s the football star. They’re in a relationship. But the relationship was toxic.”

Last Wednesday, Zach Greene, a friend of Emma’s, testified that two days before she was killed, Emma was at a party when she began receiving a string of anonymous texts claiming that someone close to her had been kidnapped. “Go to the car with your keys,” one text stated. “Go alone… I’ve got someone you love. If you don’t comply, I will hurt them.”

When Walker, Greene and a group of friends went outside, they found Gaul face down on the ground, claiming he’d been kidnapped.

Gaul later admitted to sending the texts and making up the kidnapping, according to the prosecutor.

Defense attorney Wesley Stone argued that Gaul never meant to kill Emma, but instead fired at her home because he allegedly wanted to show her he was “coming to her rescue, being her hero,” he said, the AP reports.

As such, he said jurors could consider a charge of reckless homicide but should not convict his client of first-degree murder.

The trial is continuing.
