Fort Lauderdale, Florida. (WSVN) – The defense has suspended its case in the Daionte Resells murder trial.
Resells, 27, escaped from Broward court in 2016 during a routine hearing.
He was charged in 2014 in connection with the murder of Jill Sue at her home in Davie.
The verdict could be delivered as early as Friday when the jury hears closing arguments from both the state and the defense.
On Thursday, the defense called only one witness in an attempt to discredit his DNA inside the house.
“This defendant’s DNA is in a blot, isn’t it?” Prosecutor Maria Schneider said.
The witness said, “Yes.”
“And you don’t tell these ladies and gentlemen of the jury that he’s not included in the other two samples,” Schneider said. “You’re just having a problem with numbers.”
The witness said: “It is true.”
“Thank you. Nothing else,” Schneider said.
Police said Resiles broke into Su’s home in an attempt to burglarize him when he came across Su.
Then he stabbed her to death.
The jury has been dismissed and is likely to be impeached during its deliberations, which are set to begin Friday.
If Rissels is found guilty, he could face the death penalty.
