Corey Jones killing: Prosecution rests in police shooting trial

Prosecutors on Monday rested their manslaughter and attempted murder case against ex-cop Nouman Raja in the fatal shooting of stranded motorist Corey Jones.

The fifth day of the former Palm Beach Gardens officer’s trial included an FBI-produced audio compilation of key recordings in the case, graphic photos from Jones’ autopsy on Oct. 18, 2015, and two defense witnesses.

Still unclear is whether Raja will testify in his own defense on Tuesday, before closing arguments scheduled for Wednesday morning.

Circuit Judge Joseph Marx said he needs to decide if the six jurors will be sequestered at a hotel overnight Wednesday in the event their deliberations would continue into Thursday.
