Barrus trial: State, defense rest their case in Lloyd Barrus trial

BUTTE — Both the State and the defense rested their cases in Lloyd Barrus’ deliberate homicide by accountability trial Monday morning, in which Barrus is accused in the death of a Broadwater County Sheriff’s deputy in 2017.

The judge decided to dismiss the jury until Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. when closing arguments will begin. The delay was decided so both sides can go over jury instructions.
