fire crews in the air and on the ground say they're slowing the advance of new mexico's wildfires, which have damaged or destroyed about 170 homes across hundreds of thousands of acres. president biden has declared the wildlife zone a disaster. and these amazing time-lapse satellite images show smoke from the wind-fueled wildfires coinciding with a dust storm in colorado. actress amber heard has taken the stand in her defense in the $50 million defamation suit filed against her by her ex-husband, johnny depp. during her testimony, heard alleged she suffered both physical and sexual abuse during their marriage, which depp denies. here's abc's trevor ault. >> do you remember the first time that he physically hit you? >> yes. >> please tell the jury about it. >> reporter: amber heard taking the witness stand. >> we fell -- i fell head over heels in love with this man. i remember he took the foil off of the -- off of this bottle and put it on my ring finger, and i had only been with him like days.
1:43 am
>> reporter: but then she says things began to change. that depp became jealous of her acting roles and criticized how she dressed. >> i found myself trying to not talk about auditions, because it was -- it would change the mood so dramatically. he would make these comments about whoring myself out but do so in the context of me acting. >> reporter: she added that jealousy then turned to violence. >> he just threw this glass across the kitchen. it didn't hit me, but it shattered behind me. i remember thinking it very easily could have hit me. >> reporter: then emotionally retelling the alleged first time that depp hit her. >> we're sitting next to each other on the couch, and i ask him about the tattoo he has on his arm. he said it says "wino," and i laughed, and he slapped me across the face. and i laughed. i didn't know what else to do. i thought this must be a joke. second slap, i know he's not
1:44 am
kidding, but i don't know what else to say or do, so i just stared at him. and he slaps me one more time, hard. before i know it, he starts crying. "i thought i put the monster away, and i've done it before. it's done." >> reporter: heard's team presented what they claim was a pattern of abuse and jealousy. a clinical and forensic psychologist who examined heard testified she was suffering from ptsd caused by intimate partner violence. >> there was a number of incidents of sexual violence reported in this relationship. mr. depp was drunk or high. he threw her on the bed, ripped off her nightgown, and tried to have sex with her. >> reporter: depp's legal team used audio records to paint heard as the alleged aggressor who they say instigated arguments that sometimes became physical. >> you didn't get punched. you got hit. i'm sorry i hit you like this, but i did not punch you. you are such a baby. grow the [ bleep ] up, johnny. >> reporter: in depp's four days
1:45 am
of testimony, the 58-year-old said in 2015, heard extinguished a cigarette on his face and partially severed his finger, throwing a vodka bottle at him while the two were in australia. depp denies ever hitting heard. his libel lawsuit stems from a 2018 op-ed published by heard in "the washington post." the 35-year-old describes herself as a public figure representing domestic abuse without naming depp, but depp's legal team argues the implications are clear and that it cost him movie roles. heard's defense argues she's within her first amendment rights. the question now is can heard's dramatic testimony sway public opinion and the jury in her favor? >> i feel like she's credible and that is what the jury should be looking for. johnny depp is a mega superstar with giant fans and a huge public base. so i don't know if truly she's ever going to turn the tide of the public.
1:46 am
