The trial in the case of John Marvin, Jr. enters the ninth day on Wednesday. Marvin is accused of causing the deaths of Hoonah police officers Matthew Tokuoka and Sgt. Anthony Wallace on August 28, 2010.
Sitka Superior Court Judge David George is presiding over the trial that’s being held at Juneau’s Dimond Courthouse.
District Attorney Dave Brower is prosecuting the case and public defender Eric Hedland has been appointed as Marvin’s attorney.
The prosecution was expected to rest its case on Tuesday with the defense presenting its case on Wednesday. But that timetable has slipped a bit.
Earlier expectations had the trial wrapping up by Friday. No indication from Judge George yet whether he will allow the jury to deliberate over the weekend if they get the case late in the week.
