GALVESTON — It was another emotion-packed day during the ongoing trial of Steven McDowell, who is charged with strangling his ex-wife, Crystal, in 2017, as video testimony of the couple’s young daughter was shown to the jury.   

Sobs could be heard throughout the courtroom as the little girl described watching the murder of her mother when she was 5 years old.
