After 12 Days Of Arguments And Testimony, It's Now Up To The Jury
The trial of CMPD officer Randall Kerrick wrapped up Tuesday after more than two weeks of testimony. The prosecution and defense spent about 2-and-a-half hours Tuesday morning making their final case to jurors about whether or not Kerrick is guilty of voluntary manslaughter for the shooting of an unarmed, black man, Jonathan Ferrell, two years ago. The jury started its deliberations at 2:40 p.m. and adjourned for the day at about 5 p.m. Deliberations resume Wednesday at 9:30 a.m.
