Closing arguments Friday in Burgarello murder trial

The fate of an elderly Sparks man on trial for murder will soon be in the hands of a jury. Closing arguments in Reno were scheduled for Friday in the Wayne Burgarello case. The 74-year-old is accused of shooting two unarmed trespassers at a vacant duplex he owns. One of those victims died. Prosecutors argued he acted out of revenge for a rise in crime in the neighborhood. Burgarello’s attorney says he had every right to shoot the trespassers under the “Stand Your Ground” law.
