DURANGO, Colo. (KDVR) – After weeks of testimony, attorneys will make closing arguments Thursday in the murder trial of Mark Redwine in La Plata County.

The father is accused of killing his 13-year-old son, Dylan, in 2012.

The defense wrapped their case Wednesday without calling Mark to the stand, but he did speak briefly to the judge about his decision.

  • “I have decided not to testify,” Redwine told the judge.
  • “And is this your decision?” the judge asked.
  • “Yes it is,” Redwine answered.

The jury will return at 8:30 a.m. Thursday. They will hear closing arguments and deliberations will begin. You can watch the closing arguments live on FOX31 NOW on our Mark Redwine trial page.
