Defendant in Cash Feenz case will not testify

By Staff | May 7, 2009

Cash Feenz defendant Roderick Washington will not testify on his own behalf.
His trial resumed this morning at 8:30 a.m. in Courtroom G of the Lee County
Justice Center, the courtroom of Lee Circuit Judge Thomas Reese.
Washington is charged with two counts each of first-degree murder, kidnaping and aggravated battery
with a deadly weapon. He faces life in prison if convicted in the 2006 slayings.
Both sides have now rested.
Assistant State Attorney Bobbie Lee has begun closing statements, and is discussing the laws regarding felony murder and shared criminal responsibility.
The 12-person jury will likely begin deliberations by midday, after two alternates are dismissed.
