Closing arguments set to begin in Cheley murder trial


Closing arguments will start first thing Friday in the murder trial of Shan Cheley, the man accused of killing 18-year-old Amber Deloach in 2012. 

The strongest evidence so far that connects Deloach with her accused killer is surveillance video, which the prosecution showed in court on Thursday.

Prosecutors say Amber Deloach's car can be seen driving through downtown Savannah in the early morning hours of September 30, 2012. Minutes later, you see a man walking down that same street. 

Investigators say Cheley admits that it was him walking in the surveillance video. 

Cheley is accused of raping and killing Amber Deloach, then putting her body in the trunk of a car and lighting it on fire. 

The trial will continue Friday at 9:30 a.m.
