Defense rests in Front Range death penalty trial

CENTENNIAL, Colorado ” Defense lawyers have rested their case in the Arapahoe County trial of a man accused of killing two people, including a witness who was scheduled to testify against him.

Sir Mario Owens could face the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder in the June 2005 shooting deaths of Javad Marshall-Fields and Vivian Wolfe.

Owens’ attorneys finished their case Tuesday. Closing arguments are expected to begin Thursday or Friday, followed by jury deliberations.

Marshall-Fields was to testify against Owens and another man in a separate shooting death. Owens was eventually convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole in that case.

Wolfe was Marshall-Fields’ fiancee.
