Prosecution Rests In Michael Dunn Murder Case

DEREK KINNER, Associated Press

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors have rested their case in the trial of a Florida man charged with killing a teen after an argument over loud music outside a convenience store.

Prosecutors called their last witness in direct testimony on Monday, a week after jury selection began in the first-degree murder trial of Michael Dunn.

Dunn is charged with first-degree murder. He is pleading not guilty, claiming he acted in self-defense when he fatally shot 17-year-old Jordan Davis of Marietta, Ga., outside the store in Jacksonville.

Maria Pagan, an analyst with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, testified earlier in the day about the steps Dunn took before shooting the teen. Her testimony bolstered the contention from prosecutors that Michael Dunn acted with premeditation when he fatally shot Davis in 2012.
