Jurors at JW Potter’s murder trial were shown the aftermath of his murder, with Heather Mack holding the gun used to shoot her mother as she holds the gun up to her own head.

Jurors heard evidence on Wednesday in the case over the Mazzella family shooting at an Indian summer camp in 2001.

Mack pleaded guilty to her mother’s murder in June and sister Michelle was found guilty of being an accessory after the fact.

She will be sentenced on Thursday.

The trial heard that the victims, Luz and Paulo Mazzella, died after Donna Mack raised the alarm that her husband was chasing her with a gun.

The trial has heard that the murder was carried out by Sir Rupert Potter, Mack’s brother-in-law.

Mack and Michelle were arrested in March this year after Mack’s desperate pleas for help caught the attention of police.

She was ordered to make a confession to police on 5 March and was asked how she knew about the murder in 2005.

Mack then referred to a notebook that was found with her in which she said her husband had told her he was going to kill the Mazzella’s.

She said it was written by her husband and addressed to her and Michelle. She said her husband “made a couple of mistakes in his life” but she did not believe they were fatal.
