CHAMBERSBURG — Closing arguments are scheduled Tuesday in the trial of a West Virginia man accused of gunning down a motorist on Interstate 81 more than 5½ years ago.
PennLive.com reports that defense attorneys for John Strawser Jr., 42, of Terra Alta presented no evidence after prosecutors rested their case.
The Sentinel takes a closer look at accused I-81 shooter John Wayne Strawser Jr. and breakdowns within the criminal justice system:
Prosecutors in Franklin County charged Strawser with first-degree murder in the January 2014 death of 28-year-old Timothy Davison.
Police say Davison was driving home to Maine when a pickup truck driver started firing at him, rammed his SUV, forcing it onto a median, and then circled back and shot him again.
Two ex-friends said Strawser had threatened them and they were driving in a similar vehicle on I-81. The defense has questioned why it took them 16 months to come forward.
