TUPELO – The defense and prosecution rested in the Christopher Brandon murder trial Thursday and will be presenting closing arguments this morning at 10:15 in Circuit Court.
Brandon, 30, is charged with depraved-heart murder for the 2007 death of his live-in girlfriend’s 15-month-old son Xavier Staples. Depraved-heart murder is a murder that is not a premeditated act. It is committed without any regard for human life.
