Jury Now Deliberating Hereford Verdict

(Lander) – The jury is now deliberating whether to convict 25-year-old John Hereford of Second Degree Murder, Kidnapping and two counts of First Degree Sexual Assault after a four-day trial that started Monday in Lander.
Hereford is accused of killing Travis Armajo then raping a woman in Lander on September 11th of last year.
Defense Attorney Bob Horn argued the prosecution has failed to present enough evidence for conviction and defense witnesses testified Hereford and Armajo were not only cousins but lifelong friends.
In closing arguments, the prosecution told the jury the verdict is clearly guilty but the defense claimed the charges against Hereford are not appropriate so he cannot be convicted of them.
