Attorneys have rested their case in Oklahoma murder trial

Was it an abhorrent case of hate escalating into murder, or a case of lack of mental capacity resulting in death? These are two questions the jury in an Oklahoma murder trial may soon try to answer. The attorneys rested their case on Tuesday in the trial regarding the murder of a Lebanese man, but the jury will reportedly return today for further proceedings.

If you are not familiar with this case, you will have to go back to 2016 for details. On Aug. 12 of that year, the defendant allegedly shot and killed a 37-year-old Lebanese-American man after years of verbally harassing the entire family. Reports also indicate that the defendant purposely struck the victim's 65-year-old grandmother with his car several months earlier.

Although the case may sound cut-and-dried, it is actually just the opposite. With disturbing evidence on both sides, the jury will likely find it challenging to sort out the facts and come to a fair verdict. Obviously, the family of the deceased wants to bring the person responsible for taking their loved one's life to justice. On the other side, there is compelling evidence to believe that the alleged killer is not mentally competent.

All murder/ homicide charges need the full attention of the authorities. They should be investigated properly and every attempt to uncover the facts must be made. Two roles a criminal defense attorney fills in these cases is to ensure that the defendant has an advocate and that his or her side of the case is heard. This blog will post a follow-up on the outcome of this case as soon as the court releases the verdict.
