PURCELL — More than a week of testimony is nearing a close in the first-degree murder trial of an Oklahoma man charged in the deaths of two children and their mother.
For the past week, a 12-member jury in McClain County has heard testimony in the case of Shaun Michael Bosse of Blanchard. Prosecutors say jurors could begin deliberating a verdict in the case later this week after hearing closing arguments by prosecutors and defense attorneys.
Bosse is charged in the July 23, 2010, deaths of 25-year-old Katrina Griffin and her children — 8-year-old Christian Griffin and 6-year-old Chasity Hammer. Their bodies were found in the family's burned-out mobile home.
Bosse — who also faces a count of first-degree arson — has pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
