With closing arguments concluded in the case involving the shooting death of GPD officer Elbert Piolo, the fate of Mark Torre Jr. is now in the hands of the jury.
Mark Torre Jr. is facing charges of negligent homicide and aggravated assault both with the special allegation of use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a crime.
The charges are a result of an incident that occurred on July 13, 2015. Torre is accused of pulling the trigger which led to the death of fellow police officer Elbert Piolo.
On Tuesday, legal counsels made their final attempts to sway the jury, telling them what they believe the evidence in the case has shown.
Jury instructions were provided to jurors Wednesday morning and they are now in deliberations.
In Torre’s first trial, it took the jury less than two days to return a verdict.
