CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa Closing arguments in the Tajh Ross murder trial were postponed this morning and reset to 9 a.m. Tuesday in Linn County District Court.
Ross, 20, is on trial for first-degree murder, intimidation with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit a forcible felony and going armed with intent. He is accused of shooting and killing Latasha Roundtree, 19, while she was a passenger in a car.
According to testimony, Roundtree was with two friends heading to a party where Ross also was that night. Roundtree wasn’t targeted that night, but she was the only victim.
The defense rested after Ross took the stand Friday. The trial began July 15.
