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.
