BEATRICE, Neb. (KMTV) — KMTV's Jake Wasikowski is in court following the trial. Click here for his tweets from inside the courtroom.

For the first time, prosecutors showed surveillance video of what Joshua Keadle was doing during the time Tyler "Ty" Thomas went missing in 2010. He's accused of murdering her and dumping her body in the Missouri River.

Surveillance video from a bank on 5th Street in Peru show, what prosecutors say, is Josh Keadle's SUV driving south at 2:09 a.m. Nemaha County Sheriff Deputy Casey Moyer testified Keadle's 1996 Ford Explorer was seen on video going south again at 3:15 a.m., but never heading north. The bank is near the road that goes to the Missouri River boat dock in Peru.

The defense questioned what investigators believed actually happened in the early morning hours of December 3, 2010. Prosecutors have not given a detailed timeline yet.

A Lincoln Police Department certified blood stain analyst testified that she re-examined Keadle's vehicle years after Thomas' disappearance. The Ford Explorer was being stored in an enclosed building for years. She said she didn't find any blood stains or DNA using new technology.
