Testimony ends in Luna murder trial, closing arguments begin Friday
DUNCAN, Okla. – Another emotional day at the Stephens County Courthouse as investigators and the doctor who performed Christopher Lane’s autopsy took the witness stand.
An OSBI investigator talked about finding gunshot residue on the passenger side of the vehicle.
The investigator also said a particle containing lead was found on Chancey Luna’s right hand.
He’s the young man on trial accused of pulling the trigger.
But his defense attorneys argued the lead may not have come from a gun.
Later, photos of Lane’s bloody t-shirt and body were shown during testimony from a doctor with the medical examiner’s office.
The doctor explained Lane was shot once in the left back.
She said the bullet hit several vital organs, including both lungs, ultimately causing his death.
Behind closed doors, Lane’s family sobbed as Luna faced forward, not looking at the photos.
Outside Luna’s mom waited.
She says she is angry she wasn’t allowed to sit inside the courtroom until she went up to testify.
She took the stand for only a few minutes before the defense rested its case.
Closing statements will be tomorrow morning.
