ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A jury is set to hear closing arguments early next week in the murder trial of a 40-year-old man charged with killing a Mendota Heights police officer.
The St. Cloud Times reports the Stearns County jurors will be sequestered until they reach a verdict after hearing closing arguments Monday morning. The defense rested its case Thursday after Brian Fitch Sr. announced he was waiving his right to testify at trial.
Fitch is charged with first-degree murder in the July 30, 2014 shooting of officer Scott Patrick. Prosecutors allege Fitch fatally shot Patrick after he pulled the suspect's vehicle over in West St. Paul.
Police say Fitch was involved in a shootout with officers before his arrest.

A Bemidji man was hospitalized after a semi-trailer crash in Eden Lake Township early Thursday morning.
The Stearns County Sheriff John Sanner says the accident happened on County Road 9 in Eden Lake Township.
Sanner says 48-year-old Michael Paul Gates of Bemidji was traveling northbound on the road at 2:12 a.m. when he lost the control of the semi-trailer because of the icy road conditions. He veered off into the ditch and sheered off a telephone pole.
Gates was taken to the St. Cloud Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Members of the Eden Valley Rescue Squad and Watkins Ambulance assisted the Stearns County Sheriff.

Governor Mark Dayton has decided not to include additional funding at this time in his proposed budget for the state’s largest system of higher education.
Dayton says his decision is based on the disagreements about the Charting the Future strategic plan. MnSCU administrators and the Minnesota State College Faculty organizations issued a joint statement saying they take the governor’s decision to not increase his support of MnSCU very seriously.
MnSCU leadership and the faculty leadership say they are taking the necessary steps to resolve their disagreement about Charting the Future and look forward to working with the governor on developing a budget that meets the needs of students and state of Minnesota.
