ST. PAUL, MN (WTAQ) - The prosecution will rest its case Monday in the Minnesota trial of Jeffrey Trevino, who's charged with killing his Wausau area wife Kira Steger.
Retired St. Paul police sergeant John Wright interviewed Trevino for four hours after the 30-year-old Steger went missing in February. The defense will cross-examine Wright Monday morning before bringing in a short list of witnesses.
Defense lawyer John Conard must tell the judge Monday whether the 39-year-old Trevino plans to take the stand in his own defense. Media reports say he probably won't testify, because it would make him answer questions about key pieces of evidence presented in the two-week-old trial.
Jury deliberations could begin as early as Tuesday.
