Jury re-watches 2 key videos in police shooting of motorist

14 June, 2017, 06:31 | Author: Michele Stevens

Jury deliberations will continue Tuesday at 9 a.m.

She also told several different stories about marijuana in the auto, first saying it was hers, later saying in an interview that she and Castile bought it earlier that day, and finally testifying that it was Castile who bought it, not her. The final group of a dozen jurors includes both black jurors who heard testimony.

An attorney for a Minnesota police officer charged in the shooting death of a black motorist a year ago says the officer "did what he had to do".

Yanez killed Castile after pulling him over for a broken taillight July 6.

Yanez exited his vehicle and told Castile his brake light was broken.

The prosecutor said Yanez's defense team may tell you that the shooting was Castile's fault since Castile had marijuana in his system, but Paulsen said there is no credible evidence that he was actually impaired.

But during closing arguments on Monday, Yanez's defense team said Castile reached for his gun when he was told not to.

After he shot Castile, Yanez is heard on the squad auto video telling a supervisor variously that he didn't know where Castile's gun was, then that he told Castile to get his hand off it. Yanez testified Friday that he meant that he didn't know where the gun was "up until I saw it in his right thigh area".

Gray says the case is a classic example why guns and drugs don't mix.

This is why this case should concern every police officer in America.

Yanez, who is Latino, testified last week that he saw a gun and that the driver, who was black, ignored his commands not to pull it out.

Paulsen also showed jurors an autopsy photo of Castile's right trigger finger.

Paulsen also argued that any applied negligence and any claimed fault on the victim's part isn't a defense.

Leary's instructions included the legal definition of second-degree manslaughter in Minnesota, as well as the elements the jury must consider related to the charge.

Closing arguments were expected at midmorning in the trial of police Officer Jeronimo (yeh-RON'-ih-moh) Yanez.

Philando Castile funeral was held on July 14, 2016 in St. Paul Minnesota. Castile disclosed he was carrying a licensed handgun.

Gray agreed that the officer did not say the gun was black in his initial statements, but Gray made clear that the reason was because Yanez "had just been traumatized". She says, "This is no longer about Philando; this is about humanity".

Yanez faces one count of second-degree manslaughter and two counts of unsafe discharge of a firearm for endangering the lives of Castile's girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, and her 4-year-old daughter when he fired seven bullets into the vehicle.

Castile's girlfriend Diamond Reynolds' video of the gruesome aftermath of the shooting was shared widely on Facebook. Defense Attorney Paul Engh leaves the Ramsey County Courthouse after presenting closing arguments in the case of Jeronimo Yanez in St. Paul, Minn. on Monday, June 12, 2017. Prosecutors highlighted the dashcam video's recording of statements Yanez gave a supervisor soon after the shooting, saying variously he didn't know where Castile's gun was and that he told him to take his hand off it. Yanez testified that he meant only that he didn't see the gun at first.
