Roughly 50 minutes after court was scheduled to begin Thursday, Judge Matt Johnson began reading the jury "charge" in the first Twin Peaks shooting trial, which concluded testimony on Wednesday.
The approximately 57-page jury charge essentially instructs the jurors about what charges Dallas Bandido Jake Carrizal faces and what would constitute an offense, while also explaining the presumption of innocence.
Later Thursday, prosecutors and the defense team were scheduled to make their closing arguments in the trial before the jury begins deliberations behind closed doors. Judge Johnson said each side would get one hour to make their final points to the jurors.
Nine people were killed in the 2015 shootout at the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco, Texas.
Carrizal faces charges of engaging in organized criminal activity with an underlying offense of murder, engaging in organized criminal activity with an underlying offense of aggravated assault, and a charge of directing the activities of a criminal street gang for his alleged involvement in the shootout.
