The entire case wrapped up a little earlier than expected. The defense was supposed to call two more witnesses; Chris' ex-wife, Nicole Gee, and their daughter, Alyssa. But, they never took the stand.
Instead, the state called rebuttal witnesses to try to chip away the defense's theory that 14-year old Dillen was violent and the one responsible for the murders. School records show the teen was written up hundreds of times, but his former teachers say they were mostly for petty things, like showing up to class without a pencil and paper.
On the flip side, they said Dillen had more reward points for good behavior than many of the other students in the classroom. They described his behavior as pretty typical for a student with ADD.
He was often frustrated with his schoolwork, but otherwise energetic, curious and funny. Dillen's middle school wrestling coach said Dillen had a positive attitude, but struggled with the sport because he wasn't aggressive enough on the mat. Closing arguments are set for Thursday morning.
