CLEVELAND (WJW) – The jury is now deliberating after closing arguments ended Tuesday afternoon in the trial for a woman accused of killing an off-duty Cleveland police officer on New Year’s Eve.
Tamara McLoyd, 18, is accused of carjacking, shooting and killing off-duty Cleveland police officer Shane Bartek.
Last week, prosecutors showed social media posts of McLoyd celebrating the New Year shortly after the murder.
Prosecutors also shared with the jury surveillance video that showed the violent carjacking, as well as the accused killer’s confession.
Prosecutors finished their case Thursday.
McLoyd’s defense finished Tuesday morning. McLoyd did not take the stand.
