Defensa en Caso Shenandoah termina de exponer su caso

Luego de apenas 45 minutos de testimonio, la defensa de los dos hombres de Shenandoah, Pa., acusados de cometer un crimen de odio, terminó de exponer su caso.

Derrick M. Donchak, de 20 años, y Brandon J. Piekarsky, de 18, enfrentan prisión de por vida de ser encontrados culpables del cargo de crimen de odio en su contra derivado de la golpiza que en 2008 mató a Luis Eduardo Ramírez Zavala.

Hoy, un sólo testigo, el agente de policía de Shenandoah y West Mahanoy Robert Senape, testificó que Ariel García identificó a Bryan Scully como quien pateó en la cabeza a Ramírez Zavala.

“Ella reconoció a los chicos de la escuela,” dijo. “Ella identificó a Scully como quien pateó a la víctima cuando ésta se encontraba tirada en el piso”.

El juez Richard A. Caputo dio un receso de 45 minutos y ordenó a los miembros jurado no deliberar el caso hasta que hayan escuchado los alegatos finales que se espera ocurran hoy más tarde.
