Chad Daybell Trial: Prosecution ends rebuttal testimony, closing arguments set for Wednesday

BOISE, Idaho (KIFI) - After calling three witnesses, the prosecution has ended their rebuttal arguments. Judge Steven Boyce then said they'll start closing arguments on Wednesday morning.

The defense rested their case last Thursday with Chad choosing not to testify.

Jurors were back in the courtroom Tuesday for Day 30.

The prosecution continued to call their rebuttal witnesses to tie up any loose ends or questions they think might still be on the minds of the jurors.

The first witness on the stand was Dr. Eric Christensen, the chief medical examiner for state of Utah. He did the autopsy on Tammy Daybell. Christensen again testified that her death was a homicide and not undetermined.

The prosecution then called Detective David Stubbs. He brought in evidence that Chadwick Daybell had turned off and erased his Google location services and search history.

Tuesday afternoon, the Judge along with the prosecution and defense will finish up on jury instructions.

Closing arguments will begin Wednesday.
