Defense rests in Conroy murder trial
The defense rested today in the Jeffrey Conroy murder trial.
Conroy's mother was the only person who took the stand today. Her son is accused of killing Ecuadorian immigrant Marcelo Lucero in November 2008.
Lori Conroy testified that after her son was arrested, he told her from jail, "Mom I did not do this. I was just trying to help out this kid.?
Yesterday, Jeffrey Conroy testified that another teen, Christopher Overton, killed Lucero. Earlier this week, a judge ruled that Conroy couldn?t blame Overton in his testimony, but amended the ruling.
The jury will hear closing arguments and start deliberations Monday morning.
