A judge has ruled, prosecutors cannot use a victim's last words as evidence in her own murder trial.

The Billings Gazette reports that a 20-year-old man killed 28-year-old
woman. Before she died she made a statement about her attacker. That evidence, that prosecutors called a "dying declarations" cannot be used according to the judge.

The trial has begun.
