On Monday morning, the jury in the Albert Johnson capital murder trial was shown body cam video from the first responders who responded to the crime scene.

That video was very hard for the victim's families to see. Many of them came out crying in the hallway of the courthouse after prosecutors began playing the tape.

Despite listening to hours of testimony and seeing the video for himself, Johnson did not show any emotion or remorse for the June 2014 attack.

Johnson remained stoic and silent and listened to both a police officer and police detective with The Village Police Department testify about what they saw when they responded to the 911 call coming from a home on Lakeside Drive.

They testified how there was blood all over the floor and the walls and how they found 24-year-old Rachel Rogers' unconscious body in one of the rooms.

The officers testified how they tried to give her CPR to save her life but it was too little too late.

The entire time, friends and family of Rogers and Johnson's former girlfriend were inside the courtroom, listening to every painful word. 

They also saw all of the body cam footage from The Village Police Department as officers processed the crime scene and tended to the victims.

Johnson's legal team does not deny Johnson attacked both women, but said they are now fighting for his life.

Johnson is pleading guilty by reason of insanity for the attack that left Rogers dead, and not guilty to the rest of the nine felony counts he faces.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in this case.
