Murder trial for Aventura developer begins Monday

Opening statements are set to begin Monday in the murder trial of Adam Kaufman, 39, an Aventura developer accused of strangling his wife.

Miami-Dade prosecutors will tell the 12-person jury that Kaufman strangled Eleonora Kaufman, 33, in the bathroom of their Aventura house, then lied by claiming she fell and hit her neck on a bathroom magazine holder.

Eleonora Kaufman’s death remained unclassified for months until Dr. Bruce A. Hyma, Miami-Dade’s chief medical examiner, ruled she died from mechanical asphyxiation.

Arrested in 2009, Kaufman is charged with second-degree murder and faces up to life in prison if convicted.
