Prosecution and Defense Rest Their Cases Monday

Posted: Updated:

We could be nearing a verdict in the Jasmine Nicole Eskew trial as both the prosecution and defense rested their cases today.

The eleventh day of the trial could be described as one of the fastest in the process. The trial picked up where Friday ended as detectives interrogation of Greg Robey finished playing for the jury.

In the Robey video he said "she was shaking her kind of rough."

Afterward, the defense cross examined Detective Jesse Slaughter with the main approach being to find inconsistencies with police reports, but Slaughter answered the defense by showing why Eskew was a person of interest to begin with.

Det. Slaughter recalled that "she had inconsistent statements. Basically meaning that she was suspicious at the time, and we needed to interview her."

The prosecution rested their case late this morning and the defense had four witnesses take the stand with their main target Greg Robey.

Two witnesses talked about Robey's difficulty of telling the truth, and from there, the defense went from questioning Robey's ability to tell the truth, to reports of how he disciplined children.

Before the defense rested, one witness who worked with Eskew said she was one who didn't present an abusive personality.

Apton Sheldon said that Jasmine "was a good mom. She would bring in Brooklynn every once in a while so everyone could see, it was kind of the thing to do, bring your little kids in and show them off."

After eleven days, prosecuting and defense attorneys will make their closing arguments tomorrow morning. Afterward the case will be handed over to the jury for deliberation and a long awaited verdict will be reached.
