DAY 6: Defense, prosecution rest their cases

January 24, 2012

BROOKVILLE — Both sides in Steven Rebert’s double homicide trial rested their cases Monday following a week of testimony at the Jefferson County Courthouse.

The Commonwealth seeks the death penalty in the case in which Rebert, formerly of Emporium, faces double homicide charges in the shooting deaths of Victoria and Wayne Shugar, both 61, who were found dead April 12, 2010, in their Coal Tipple Road home, Brockway.

Monday, public defender John Ingros, representing Rebert, called to the stand Stephen Buttering, Brockway, who testified that he was home the night of April 10, 2010.
