Murder Trial Goes To Jury


KALAMAZOO, MI (WKZO) -- The Murder trial of John Aguilar has gone to the jury.  Aguilar is charged with being the mastermind behind the robbery of Kalamazoo Antiques Dealer Robert Medema last August.

Alleged co-conspirator Antonio Livingston testified during his trial that it was Aguilar who beat Medema with a baseball bat.   Then this week he testified that he was the one who struck Medema with the bat, just meaning to stun him, not kill him, but that it didn’t seem to be working so he kept hitting him.  By the prosecutor’s estimate, it’s the 25th different version of that night’s events Livingstone has told. 

Still he implicated Aguilar in the crime, saying it was all his plan.

The jury deliberated for just over an hour yesterday afternoon before going home for the day. They are due back this morning at 9.
