Mark Goudeau Trial Coming to a Closeon October 18, 2011 in Alleged Serial Killers by Brian Combs
The trial of Mark Goudeau for the murder of nine people, plus countless additional crimes, is coming to a close.
Prosecutors gave their closing statements Monday. They showed video clips of testimony from earlier in the trial, where victims verbally or visually identified Goudeau as their attacker.
Said Deputy Maricopa County Attorney Patricia Stevens:
For a year, this defendant terrorized our valley. He is a human predator with an appetite to rape, to control and, ultimately, to kill.
Defense closing statements are happening today. They are expected to conclude last this afternoon.
At that point, the case will be given to the jury. If he is found guilty of any of the nine murders, he could be given the death penalty.
