Closing Arguments Scheduled


Closing arguments will be heard Thursday in the capital murder trial of Oscar Doster in Andalusia.

The Andalusia Star-News is reporting that defense attorneys rested their case Tuesday without calling any witnesses to the stand.

Doster escaped from the Covington County Jail with three other inmates in November of 2002.

Paul Lemaster was shot to death in his trailer near Gantt the next day.

Lemaster's pick-up truck was also stolen.

Doster and another inmate still had the vehicle when they were recaptured in Texas near the Mexico border nearly two weeks later.

Closing arguments in the case are scheduled for 9AM Thursday morning.
