Prosecution and defense rest in Tata trial

Posted: Updated:

Prosecutors and defense attorneys have rested their cases in the Jessica Tata murder trial. 

Closing arguments in the trial will begin Monday at 9 a.m.

Tata is charged with four counts of murder and injury to a child.

Prosecutors said Tata left the oil cooking on the stove and went shopping when the fire started.

On Wednesday the defense called a an electrical engineer who testified that a faulty knob on the stove may have caused the oil cooking to go from low to high.

The engineer also said he could not rule out the fire may have started from the refrigerator.

Later, this afternoon the Prosecution will call three of it's own experts to rebut what the defense expert witness testified about the faulty knob.
