Prosecution rests in Reno murder, rape case

RENO, Nev. (AP) - The ex-girlfriend of the Nevada man accused of killing a college coed and sexually assaulting two young women says she watched from her office window the day Brianna Denison's body was found in a field outside her workplace.

James Biela's ex also testified on Monday that she followed the case closely and even discussed it with Biela in the months before he was charged with Denison's kidnapping and murder in November 2008.

Charleen Harmon, who is the mother of Biela's son, says he told her the only reason anyone cared about the high-profile case was because the 19-year-old Denison was "hot" and came from a wealthy family.

The prosecution rested it's case late Monday afternoon.
