Fate of man accused of double murder in Eastchester in the hands of the jury
Attorneys presented closing arguments in the double murder trial of Selwyn Days.
Days is accused of killing 79-year-old Archie Harris and his home health aide Betty Ramcharan seven years ago in Harris' Eastchester home. The prosecution claims Days admitted to the murders when interrogated by police.
But in Monday's closing arguments, Days' attorney says the confession was bogus. He said there is absolutely no connection to his client. The attorney went on to say that Days' fingerprints were never found at the crime scene and neither was his DNA.
The prosecution maintained that Days told police details about the murders--information the prosecution says only a killer would know.
Jurors were shown the tape of Days speaking with police, and now must decide whether or not he is guilty.
Days is charged with first and second-degree murder. If convicted, he could face life in prison without parole.
