BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP/KMOV) -- The southwestern Illinois trial of a St. Louis man accused in the 2005 triple killings at a Belleville beauty salon makes a pivot as the defense prepares to make its case to jurors.
St. Clair County prosecutors rested their case last week in the trial of 21-year-old Darrell Lane after presenting evidence that a bloody fingerprint connects Lane to the crime.
Jurors report back to court Monday, when Lane's defense will present its side.
Lane is accused of first-degree murder in the stabbing deaths of hairdresser Michael Cooney and two of his clients, sisters Doris Fischer and Dorothy Bone.
Lane has pleaded not guilty and remains jailed. He was 16 when the murders took place.
