GALVESTON, Texas (AP) - Lawyers for a Houston man accused of capital murder for killing a bystander during a shooting rampage outside a Southeast Texas courthouse have wrapped up their case.
Jurors are to begin deciding Tuesday after closing arguments by attorneys whether 42-year-old Bartholomew Granger should be convicted in the death last March of 79-year-old Minnie Ray Sebolt.
Granger took the stand Monday to admit he shot at his daughter for testifying against him in case where she accused him of sexual assault. But he denied his gunfire killed Sebolt.
If he's convicted, prosecutors want jurors to send Granger to death row.
