The prosecution in the Moody Manor trial rests its case Wednesday morning in the shooting and killing of 1-year-old Keondra Hooks.
Both defense lawyers for defendants, Antwaine Jones, 18, and Keshawn Jennings, 20, did not call any witnesses. Both sides have begun closing arguments around 9 a.m.
The prosecution brought a key witness to the stand, James Moore, who drove the getaway vehicle in the shooting and settled for a three year plea. The three men had mixed up the address and ended up firing 16 bullets into the homes where the Keondra and her sister were sleeping.
The judge dismissed three jurors for health reasons and a personal conflict with a witness. The third juror was excused as for being a bridesmaid in a wedding that conflicts during jury deliberation.
