FRANKLIN COUNTY, Wash. - Tashia Stuart's ex-husband didn't want to help or hurt the murder case against her.

Todd Stuart pleaded the fifth in a Franklin County courtroom today.

Todd Stuart stood trial in this same courthouse last year, where he was acquitted for an attempt on Judy Hebert's life.

Tashia Stuart shot and killed Judy a couple weeks after that attempt.

Tashia says she shot her mother in self-defense. She's on trial for premeditated murder.

The defense called Tashia's ex as a witness, before they officially started their case.
