The prosecution and defense wrapped up their cases Monday in Washtenaw County Circuit Court. Twenty-one-year-old Ed Thomas of Detroit faces open murder and robbery charges in the Oct. 18 death of Reed, a 20-year-old from Chicago.
In closing arguments Monday, Assistant Prosecutor Nimish Ganatra said that Thomas is just as guilty as the shooter. Twenty-year-old Kristopher Pratt pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.
Pratt admits pulling the trigger and has testified against Thomas. Ganatra says Thomas handed Pratt the gun.
Thomas's lawyer Lorne Brown says Pratt lied to get a plea deal and says Thomas was just hanging out with Pratt the night of the killing.
