Arresting Officer to be "Key Witness" in Murder Trial

Posted: Updated:
Pasco, WA- The attorney for a man accused of murder may argue police didn't properly read the man his rights.

Jose Garcia Morales and his brother are accused of shooting a Pasco couple in their home. Police in Idaho arrested the two brothers a few days after the killings.

Morales' lawyer says the officer who read Morales his Miranda rights will be a key witness in the trial.

    A Spanish-speaking interpreter sitting beside Morales is translating everything said in Franklin County Court.

 Morales and his brother, Ramon Morales, will be tried separately in May and June.
