Closing arguments in the murder trial of accused cop killer William Woodard have been delayed, and are now expected to begin on Thursday.
It is not clear why the trial was delayed.
The 34-year-old is charged with gunning down DeKalb County police officers Eric Barker and Ricky Bryant at an apartment complex where they were working off-duty security.
Woodard claims he fired in self-defense.
The defense rested its case on Tuesday after a ballistics expert testified that Woodard was on the ground and shot up towards the officers. The expert used two law students to demonstrate how the 10 shots could have been fired in 3 seconds. Last week, the medical examiner testified that the shooter had to be standing up.
On cross examination, the expert admitted that he had not examined the officer's body and was basing his testimony on the evidence after the crime scene had been cleared.
If Woodard is convicted, prosecutors plan to ask jurors to give him the death sentence.
