Colegrove Murder Trial Day 5

July 22, 2010 Updated Jan 26, 2009 at 2:13 PM EST

The second week of testimony is underway in the case of a Broome County man, accused of murdering his parents and brother.
Today, the prosecution rested its case.
32 year old Steven Colegrove of Deposit is charged in the shooting deaths of Joseph, Marlene and Michael Colegrove.
All three were found shot to death in their Tuscarora township home in August 2007.
This morning, the Prosecution called witnesses to refute claims that Steven was not involved.
A deposit police officer told the court he was in the police station the night the Colegroves were murdered.
Steven claims he was sitting on his porch in Deposit that night watching the police car drive by several times, and that he couldn't have been at the family's Tuscarora Township home at the time of the murder.
A Pennsylvania state trooper was also called to the stand, where he told the court he saw Heather Colegrove the night of the killings wearing a tank top, and she had not bruising on her shoulder.
Meaning she hadn't fired a shotgun recently.
Heather is the wife of Robert Colegrove, the third Colegrove child.
After that testimony, the district attorney then rested his case.
