Jury Deliberating in Callie Long Trial

Lubbock Sheriff's Office Lubbock Sheriff's Office

On Wednesday Lubbock County jurors spent six hours in deliberations to try and determine whether Callie Long is guilty or not-guilty of intoxication manslaughter in the death of bicyclist Brett Walrath.

Walrath died several months after being hit on Loop 289 in August 2003. Police say Long was drinking the night she hit Walrath and fled the scene. She was arrested just blocks away.

Both lawyers finished off their closing arguments before they sent the jury in to begin reviewing evidence. Prosecuting attorney, Rod Hobson was trying to prove that Long was drunk. he used the blood level as evidence showing that Long tested at .13. Hobson then said, "The only two people that hit Brett were drinking."

The Defense rebutted the statement asking the jury, "Did the state prove intoxication manslaughter, and intoxication assault beyond a reasonable doubt?"

The jury was not sequestered for the evening, and will continue deliberating Thursday morning.
