Jury now deliberating in murder trial

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, WA- A Franklin county jury has started deliberating a verdict in a murder trial.

Defense attorneys rested their case Monday without calling a single witness, including the defendant, Gregorio Luna Luna.

Pasco police arrested Luna Luna in May 2010 for the stabbing death of the mother of his young son, Griselda Ocampo Meza,21.

In closing arguments, prosecutor Andy Miller asked jurors to convict Luna Luna of first degree murder.

The judge is allowing the jurors to also consider the lesser crime of manslaughter.
