Accused Tiller killer took target practice, prosecution says

On the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, prosecutors began presenting evidence Friday in the trial of Scott Roeder in the shooting death last May of Kansas abortion doctor George Tiller. Roeder has admitted he shot Tiller, but said it was necessary to save unborn babies. Security was tight as the opening arguments began.
