MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) - Prosecutors have rested their case in the first-degree murder trial of a parolee charged with killing a Long Island police officer and another man.

On Wednesday, jurors heard DNA evidence and an eyewitness account of one of the shootings allegedly perpetrated by defendant Darrell Fuller.

Defense attorney Kenneth St. Bernard rested the defense case without calling any witnesses.

The 34-year-old Fuller has pleaded not guilty in the October 2012 killing of Nassau County Police Officer Arthur Lopez and a second man. The second victim was killed during a carjacking after the officer was shot.

Lopez approached Fuller because he suspected Fuller had been involved in a hit-and-run accident.

Newsday (https://nwsdy.li/1qBbpqf ) reports the trial is to resume Friday with lawyers from both sides giving closing arguments.
