Murder Trial Continues

by Jessica Cervantez

Closing arguments are expected to begin Tuesday, for the trial of 42-year-old Scott Eizember one of "Oklahoma's most wanted fugitives."

Eizember led police on a month-long manhunt that ended in East Texas. He is accused of killing an Oklahoma couple, assaulting his former girlfriend's son and mother, and kidnapping an Arkansas couple.

In just about an hour the defense opened and closed their case. Both the defense and state rested last week.

Jurors were expected to hear testimony for East Texas authorities. His former girlfriend also testified, saying that Eizember admitted to her that he killed the couple.

The trial should continue Tuesday.
