PHOENIX (CBS5) -
Former Phoenix police officer Richard Chrisman will soon learn his fate when the split verdict in his murder trial is read at 10 a.m. today.
This trial pitted officer against officer and expert witness against expert witness. The other officer on the scene when the shooting occurred was Sergio Virgillo. He told investigators neither the dog nor Rodriguez posed a threat and Chrisman shot both of them for no reason.
Prosecutor Juan Martinez painted Chrisman as a rogue, irresponsible cop with an attitude problem, who, on the day of the shooting, had an agenda when it came to Rodriguez.
