  • The state rested its case in State v. Richard Chrisman

  • The state rested its case against former Phoenix Police Officer Richard Chrisman. Chrisman is charged in the 2010 death of Phoenix resident Daniel Rodriguez. Chrisman responded to a 911 call from Rodriguez's mother, who asked that police remove her son from the trailer where they lived together. Another officer told investigators that Chrisman ended up shooting Rodriguez and his dog -- killing them both -- for no apparent reason. The defense will begin its case at 10:30 a.m. on Monday
