Prosecution to Rest Soon in Nursing Home Case

In Moore County, the trial of Robert Stewart continues. The prosecution expects to rest this week.

Stewart's ex-wife is expected to testify today. The evidence presented clearly identifies Stewart as the perpetrator of the nursing home shootings. The case will turn on whether his state of mind was so impaired as to provide a defense to the killings.

If convicted of first degree murder, the jury will hear sentencing evidence and determine if Mr. Stewart should be sentenced to death or life in prison without the possibility of parole.
