Closing Arguments in Calvin Bell Murder Trial

Testimony in the Calvin Bell trial concluded Tuesday in Broome County Court and the jury will get the case Wednesday morning.

Bell is charged with murdering Owens while robbing his Binghamton apartment in June of 2013.

The defense rested its case just before noon, then closing arguments began.

Defense Attorney Michael Korchak told the jury that Calvin Bell was not guilty because this case was flawed from the beginning and his client wasn't there in the first place.

Assistant District Attorney Kevin Dooley told the jury the reason Calvin Bell is guilty because the death of Owens was a targeted robbery of a drug dealer.

The jury will begin deliberating the case Wednesday morning.
