Prosecutors opened their case Monday against Kirk Zimmerman by telling jurors he was motivated by greed and hate for his ex-wife, Pamela, before fatally shooting her almost five years ago. His defense argued they were “happily divorced” and that stories of Zimmerman’s financial problems were overblown.
