Closing arguments expected Friday in Burlington murder case
BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The defense rested its case Wednesday in the insanity murder trial of a man accused of murdering his wife with a meat cleaver back in 2017.
Both sides presented their own experts for the rebuttal portion of the trial. On Tuesday, the state’s expert was called as they try to refute the claim that Aita Gurung was insane at the time of the murder.
The judge met with the jury Wednesday afternoon to discuss the process and provide instructions going forward.
Closing arguments in the trial are expected to start Friday morning.
