Defense rests in Mark Redwine trial; Redwine declines to testify in murder case accusing him of killing son
Mark Redwine spoke for the first time since the start of his murder trial and told the judge he will not take the stand.
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - The defense has rested in the Mark Redwine trial, with Redwine declining to take the stand.
The defense rested its case just before noon Wednesday. Rebuttal witnesses for the prosecution then took the stand, wrapping up around 1:30 p.m. Closing arguments will start Thursday morning.
On Wednesday morning, with the jury out of the courtroom, Judge Jeffrey Wilson called Redwine to the microphone, advised him of his rights, and asked if he had made a decision as to whether to testify. After a short conversation with his attorney, Redwine announced to the judge, “I have decided I will not testify.”
Redwine is accused of killing his 13-year-old son Dylan during a custodial visit in 2012. Read more about the case here.
