OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. – The prosecution rested Monday in the trial for a man accused of fatally shooting two Kissimmee officers.

Judge Greg Tynan told jurors he expects the defense will present its case on Tuesday and closing arguments will be finished by the end of the day.

If that occurs, Tynan said jury deliberations will begin Wednesday morning.

A former Osceola County Jail inmate who met Everett Miller in the jail’s infirmary after Miller’s arrest in 2017 told jurors Monday that Miller hated Officer Matthew Baxter and Sgt. Sam Howard of the Kissimmee Police Department.
