Closing arguments have been heard, and the jury is deliberating the fate of Ezequiel Lopez-Quintero, accused in last May's murder of Kenosha County Deputy Frank Fabiano, Junior . District Attorney Bob Zapf rejected the defense's key argument: that Lopez-Quintero was "too damn drunk" to know what he was doing when he shot Fabiano.
Defense attorney Frederick Cohn said, under Wisconsin law, Lopez-Quintero cannot be held responsible for the murder because of his level of intoxication. The jury must determine if Lopez Quintero is guilty of first degree intentional homicide or homicide by the intoxicated use of a weapon, or innocent of all charges. They began deliberating just after 11:30 this morning.
UPDATE: Lopez-Quintero has been found guilty of first degree intentional homicde while armed with a dangerous weapon and guilty of carrying a concealed weapon. Jurors deliberated about 3.5 hours.
