Gateway murder trial

Going over tomorrow’s jury instructions

leave a comment »

There are over 30 pages of instructions to the jury.

State is alleging Cooper possessed a firearm while killing Michelle – so her count also includes a count of possession of a firearm.

Garber objected to the use of and/or language and the judge agrees. They decided to take out the and and the slash so it will read “or”

Defense asks for no special instructions.

The changes will be made and the parties will be able to look it over again before tomorrow.

Court adjourned until 9 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Closing arguments expected to be 75 minutes each side.

And we’re adjourned.
