Prosecution rests its case
Judge denies the defense's request for directed verdict
JOLIET, Ill. — Prosecutors wrapped up their portion of the Christopher Vaughn trial Wednesday morning at the Will County Courthouse in Joliet.
In a little over four weeks, they've brought in witnesses including family friends, law enforcement and first responders, and forensic scientists, introducing more than 600 exhibits of evidence for the jury.
As the state rested, Vaughn's attorneys made a motion for a directed verdict, which received opposition from Assistant State's Attorney Michael Fitzgerald.
