Both sides rest in SCAD murder trial

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The prosecution and defense have rested in the murder trial of John Adams and Alex Cowart. Both men are accused of killing Savannah College of Art and Design student Sean Giroir in October 2010.

Tuesday, the prosecution called three more witnesses to the stand: a medical examiner who performed an autopsy on Giroir, a Georgia Bureau of Investigators employee, and a detective from the Sandy Springs Police Department.

The defense then called only one witness, Skyler Walker, 18. Walker said he saw Daniel Izzo, the third suspect in the murder of Giroir and who also testified against Adams and Cowart on Thursday, riding in a car. Walker said shortly afterwards, Izzo began shooting at him.

"When I was walking, I saw them turn left. I saw Daniel and I turned around a minute to think what I should do. Then I heard a gunshot and ran home," said Walker.

"Is there any doubt in your mind who fired a gun at you on September 25th of last year Skylar?" asked the attorney.

"No sir," Walker replied.

Closing arguments in the murder trial begins Wednesday at 9:30 a.m., followed by deliberations.
