BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- A second day of testimony is underway in the trial of the Brunswick man accused of killing eight people, seven of whom were his relatives.

Prosecutors say Guy Heinze, Jr., 26, killed his father, uncle, aunt, cousins and a family friend in a bloody, drug-induced rage in August 2009. They said each victim had been beaten to death with the barrel of a shotgun.

Heinze's defense attorney, Newell Hamilton, said Heinze loved his family and would have never hurt them. Hamilton raised the question whether one man could beat eight people to death in a single-wide mobile home without waking anyone up.

The jury heard this morning the frantic 911 calls made the day Heinze said he came home from a night out to find his family massacred. They also saw the suspected murder weapon.

The prosecution continues to call witnesses.

Heinze faces the death penalty if convicted.
