VIDEO: Closing arguments continue in Sierra LaMar murder trial

Sierra LaMar

SANTA CLARA COUNTY (KRON) — Closing arguments continue Wednesday morning in the trial of the man accused of kidnapping and killing Morgan Hill teen Sierra LaMar.

Santa Clara County prosecutors allege that Antolin Garcia-Torres, 26, murdered 15-year-old Sierra LaMar in 2012.

The trial is wrapping up after almost three months of witness testimony, including discussion of the physical evidence key to the no-body case.

Garcia-Torres was arrested after LaMar’s DNA was found in the trunk his car and on her clothes, which were recovered in a field near her house outside Morgan Hill. The defense disputed this and is arguing that she was a runaway.

If convicted, the jury could impose the death penalty on Garcia-Torres, who has two children and has been in custody since May 21, 2012.
