Rodriguez Trial Continues in Mount Vernon

The trial continues in Mt. Vernon for a member of the so-called Texas seven. It was day three of testimony in the capitol murder trial of Michael Rodriguez, who police say escaped from prison and killed an Irving police officer. Prosecutors focused on an arsenal of guns and electronic equipment that was confiscated from the group when they surrendered. A forensic expert testified that bullets from the handguns were modified to cause them to fragment upon hitting a target, making a more destructive wound. Closing arguments are expected to begin tomorrow. If convicted, Rodriguez will be the 3rd of 6 men to be found guilty of murder.
