LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The defense has rested in the trial of Joseph Banis, who is accused of killing an acquaintance and burying his body in the basement of his home. Closing arguments are scheduled Thursday morning.
After a week and a half of testimony, the defense closed without putting Joseph Banis on the stand.
Banis and Jeffrey Mundt are accused of killing 37-year-old James Carroll during a fight in late 2009. Carroll's body was discovered in the basement of the couple's home in Old Louisville in June 2010.
Prosecutors say the men killed Carroll by shooting and stabbing him, then breaking his knees and stuffing his body into a container.
On Wednesday, a knife expert was on the stand for most of the morning, but perhaps the most interesting testimony came earlier this week when Mundt was being questioned.
Things got pretty heated during cross examination: Prosecutor Ryane Conroy said, "You went back to your life as somewhat as normal when Jamie Carroll was buried in your basement, right?"
Mundt answered, "I don't know if normal would be quite the word with having someone hold a gun and a knife at you 24-7, but yeah, if that's normal, my life went back to normal."
The jury has been ordered to return tomorrow morning at nine. Banis and Mundt are also being tried separately.
