ORLANDO, Fla. -- A College Park real estate agent on trial for killing her boyfriend may testify.

Caryn Kelley is accused of fatally shooting her boyfriend, Phillip Peatross, during a drunken argument inside her College Park home in 2011.        

Her attorney said in opening statements Friday that she is anxious to tell jurors in a calm manner what happened in the home.

Kelley looked composed in court Friday, which was a contrast to Thursday when she broke down crying while viewing her police interview video.

Kelley's attorney, Diana Tennis, called pathologist, Dr. William Anderson, to the stand Friday to render his opinion about how the gun that killed Peatross went off.

The defense argues Peatross went to her and grabbed the gun and he shot himself.

"Could medical examiners, in your experience, disagree on how to categorize it?" asked Tennis.

"Yes, sure," said Anderson.

"Could one categorize it as homicide, some an accident?" Tennis asked.

"Yes, I would think so," said Henderson.

There were some issues with that doctor testifying to an opinion he may not have discussed during depositions.

Kelley is expected to take the stand Friday afternoon.
