A jury will continue deliberations Monday in the trial of a 27-year-old man accused of fatally shooting a motorist who hit and injured a young boy.
Jurors in Deonte Baber’s murder trial heard closing arguments Friday afternoon in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court.
Prosecutors say Baber was the man wearing a dark jacket with a bright orange stripe, who police said walked by Jamie Urton’s car and fired multiple shots into the driver’s side. Urton, 44, was struck in the thigh and bled to death.
A security camera captured the March 24, 2017 incident but is too far away to identify anyone.
Baber’s attorneys say he wasn’t the shooter.
Immediately after the crash, the boy’s father, Jamall Killings, went up to the car and began beating Urton. Killings is Baber’s co-defendant and also is charged with murder. He testified that Baber was the gunman.
