Defense to take over in cop shooting trial

HOUSTON

Xiomara Mendez-Rosales and Andres Nava-Maldonado are being tried together. They were both there the night officer Canales was killed in a sting operation last June.

Canales was shot by a third man, who died in a shootout with police.

The prosecution has tried to show the jury Mendez-Rosales and Nava-Maldonado were committing a felony by buying stolen TVs and that act eventually caused officer Canales' death.
