Defense attorneys Bill Donaldson and Chris Byrd present their closing argument with Byrd saying, 'The reality of it, Tony Murray (the victim's husband) was the decision maker in that home.'
Prosecutor Abby Wallace gives the closing argument emphasizing, 'They chose to allow their mother to lay in her own filth. They chose to allow her back...to rot until she died. The defendants willfully and knowingly neglected a vulnerable adult.'
