Jury reaches verdict in 2021 Bulloch County triple murder trial
BULLOCH COUNTY, Ga. (WTOC) - A jury reached a verdict in a Bulloch County triple murder trial on Wednesday.
A jury found 18-year-old Rolando Millan guilty of murdering three people in a Bulloch County mobile home park on July 4, 2021. 35-year-old Brittney Sneed Mack, along with 27-year-olds Travis Sneed and Kristina Soles were all shot multiple times.
Millan was found guilty on 13 counts, including malice and felony murder, aggravated assault, and first-degree child cruelty. Millan was 16 at the time of the shooting.
Trial testimony ended Wednesday. State prosecutors rested their case Wednesday morning.
The defense did not call any witnesses and Millan himself did not want to testify.
Georgia Bureau of Investigation forensic biologist Jessica Romanoski was the last person to take the stand.
She testified that blood from Travis Sneed was found on a shoe prosecutors say belonged to Millan.
During closing statements defense lawyer Nicole Fegan urged jurors to separate fact from feeling and said the State didn’t provide enough evidence to convict Millan.
“The evidence is simply not there. The burden has not been reached. Suspicion and feelings are not enough. This case, the fact that we’re done on Wednesday before noon, shows that it’s not enough,” Millan’s Lawyer Nicole Fegan said.
State prosecutor Jillian Gibson pushed back in her closing statement.
“Return a verdict that reflects the truth in this case. You have more than enough pieces to this puzzle. Return a guilty verdict on every count in this indictment,” Prosecutor Jillian Gibson said.
Some of the victim’s family members became emotional during parts of closing statements.
