Both sides in the murder trial of Mitchell Wachholtz rested Wednesday afternoon. Wachholtz is charged with the shooting death of 21-year-old Chase Pendleton at the 7-Eleven on 34th and Memphis back in July of last year.
Wachholtz took the stand in his own defense Wednesday. He told jurors the shooting was in self-defense. Wachholtz referred back to his childhood, time in prison, and drug use as contributing factors to his feeling threatened at the store.
Defense attorneys argue that during the 31-seconds Wachholtz was in the store, he became angry at Pendleton and two of his friends, and chose to go to his van, load a gun, and shoot them.
Closing arguments will begin Thursday morning at 9 a.m.
